The people of Bermondsey and Rotherhithe helped raise money for the war effort, four aircraft were named for them in recognition of their efforts.
- Bermondsey Battler
- Bermondsey Special
- London Avenger
- Rotherhithe’s Revenge
The aircraft were B17 bombers flown by the US Air Force from Ridgewell in Essex. Whilst the airfield has now returned to farmland, you can just about make out the runways on this Google Maps link.
