258/365

~ Remembering The Few ~
Today is officially Battle of Britain Day and I am remembering and giving thanks for those brave young men who, when Great Britain stood alone in 1940, defended the skies above our Island Nation from the threat of invasion.
"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 their devotion. Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."
~ Winston Churchill
