About the memorial: Dedicated alcove within Museum with wooden backboard on which is a cross and Crucifix, American and Union Jack Flags. On shelf below are two A4 files commemorating names of the aircrew who gave their lives during WW2. One file contains names from 56th Fighter Group and the second contains names from 489th Bomb Group. The IWM Register entry refers to this memorial as a Book of Remembrance, but it seems to me that the alcove as a whole fits the definition of a shrine.
