On Bardney village green there is a memorial to RAF Bardney and IX Sqn. It is made from the three-bladed propeller and spinner from a Lancaster and a piece of Norwegian stone, mounted in a low wall.

RAF Bardney memorial wall and stone

Set into the wall is a plaque to the personnel on IX Sqn.

IX Squadron RAF In memory of all ranks killed or missing 1939 - 1945. The squadron flew from Honington, Suffolk 1939 - 1942, Waddington 1942 - 1943, & from Bardney 1943 - 1945

The stone is from Kåfjord in Norway and marks the contribution of the Norwegian resistance in the Sqn's attack against the German battleship Tirpitz. This act is also recalled in a painting at RAFC Cranwell on the stairs leading to the College Hall Library.

The inscription reads "IX Squadron RAF In memory of all ranks killed or missing 1939 - 1945. The squadron flew from Honington, Suffolk 1939 - 1942, Waddington 1942 - 1943, & from Bardney 1943 - 1945".
