Australian bomber pilots from World War 2 will soon have a permanent memorial in London.

The RAF recently commissioned the sculpting of a 60kg bronze wreath, to honour the dozens of missions flown over European skies and today it was presented to the RAAF at a ceremony in Adelaide.

The national president of the Australian Bomber Command Association Ron Houghton flew over from Sydney to make the handover but before the ceremony he dropped into the 891 studios to speak with Ian Henschke.
