Only a few are left now, frail looking old men with white hair, some with crutches others in wheelchairs, all stooped with age. But look into those eye€s that have not been dulled by the passing of the years€¦ To see a look that will never be extinguished by time, a look of pride.

Without these few, or their friends - fellow pilots who did not make it through those short hectic summer months of 1940, oh so long ago€¦ We would not be living in the World we know today...

Through their sacrifice 65 years ago, the history of the world was turned to onto another path.

The Battle of Britain, is the one most pivotal point in the whole of the War, that allowed every allied event that followed the space to happen€¦

Never forget€¦

I€m an American and I completely agree, those men changed the course of the war. I think it is fair to say without them we might not be here enjoying life as we know it.
