Today, a friend sent me a collection of paintings depicting the ‘Battle of Britain’. This prompted me to write this tribute to ‘The Few‘, that if it had not been for, some or most of us may not have been here, or be living the lives we now take for granted and enjoy!
‘The Few’ were not just British fighter pilots. They included: Americans, Australians, Belgians, Canadians, Czechoslovakians, French, Irish, New Zealanders, Polish, Rhodesians (now Zimbabwe) and South Africans of which some lost their lives fighting for Britain.
To those ‘Few’ we owe a debt of gratitude. See below a link to 5 videos that tell the story. It includes some stirring music from the 1969 film, ‘The Battle Of Britain‘ and a documentary about the conflict to make you proud!
N.B. The video clip in No. 5 is rather long but interesting. And deserves a personal thanks to the Polish Fighter pilots……….and an apology for their treatment after the war!! And there are further videos associated to flying after. Some with complete films! If you want to watch them!
