70 years ago today...

While the Soviet Union slept, the Battle of Britain reached its climax. 
Long ago, but made more real for me by family experiences.  While my family was basically Royal Navy, my mother is from Sussex, where the threat of invasion was very real.  As a young girl living in the countryside, she was never evacuated.  She still remembers vividly watching the air battles unfold over her head. 

Here's to "The Few".   We owe them more than we can ever imagine.
