The Battle of Britain took place between July and October, 1940 but it was September 15th that saw the British Royal Air Force gain a decisive victory over the Luftwaffe in what was Germany’s largest daylight attack. Now some 80+ years later we commemorate the men who would become known as "the few" who took to the skies to defend Britain on that day.
In the words of Prime Minister Winston Churchill's Battle of Britain speech delivered on August 20, 1940:
“The gratitude of every home in our Island, in our Empire, and indeed throughout the world, except in the abodes of the guilty, goes out to the British airmen who, undaunted by odds, unwearied in their constant challenge and mortal danger, are turning the tide of the World War by their prowess and by their devotion. Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few. All our hearts go out to the fighter pilots, whose brilliant actions we see with our own eyes day after day…”
Please join us as we commemorate this remarkable historical event together with a special presentation of Battle of Britain archived remembrances from the Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation.
