This figure includes 1233 Canadians, 1140 Australians, 687 Polish Air Force personnel, 200 New Zealanders and 90 Rhodesians. The first two books were dedicated in 8 Nov 1949.
The Chapel's 4 stained glass windows are memorials to Bomber Command, Flying Training Command, the Royal Rhodesian Air Force and Royal New Zealand Air Force.
