RAF Chapel of Remembrance
Biggin Hill , Kent
Sir Winston Churchill and Padre King to see what could be done to rebuild it .He felt strongly that permanent memorial chapel should be built, for as he observed,'as a nation,we have short memories;
Mr Churchill and Padre King set adout raising funds through a national appeal
The design eventually chosen was based on the original chapel and was intended to recapture the austerity,simplicity and atmosphere, as well as the size and shape, of the wartime huts.This is why the chapel we know today .
Either side of the altar are 6 panels of the reredos
On these panels are recorded the names of 453 aircrew who lost their lives on operations from airfields in the Biggin Hill sector during the Second World War.
