In memory of all who flew in The Battle of Britain and with thanks to all who work to support their memory at this wonderful Memorial site. We cannot let their sacrifices be forgotten. We Will Remember Them.

We should never forget the few and the memorial should always stand to mark their great sacrifice teaching the next generations what these people did to give them the freedoms they enjoy today.

William Wright 16th August 2020

We must all always remember the”FEW” and the sacrifice they made in defeating the Luftwaffe and preventing the Nazis from invading Britain in 1940. God bless them all!

This is a wonderful site and it is important to keep this memorial to The Few open to educate our younger generation. We love to visit. Thanks to the Trustees for doing a brilliant job! We will remember them. Love Adele & Jacob (Young Ambassador for The Battle of Britain Memorial Trust) xx
