This is a work that was inspired from travelling with Dr Kathryn Spurling researching a book involving Australian men of Bomber Command, in particular, those that died in the Netherlands. In a visit to a small town called Oostellbeers, we found that a set of graves in a church yard had decorations and was well cared for. It was found that the children of the local school look after the graves and learn about the service and sacrifice of the airmen in their graveyard.
Margaret wanted the work to be encompassing all men of Bomber Command. The other people are not those of the graves.
