Battle of Britain 75 Years ago.


A flypast involving Spitfires and Hurricanes has taken place to mark 75 years since the decisive encounter of the Battle of Britain.

A service was also held in London’s St Paul’s Cathedral to commemorate the anniversary.

In the fight the RAF broke up two Luftwaffe raids on London to turn the tide in the Allies’ favour.

Spitfires and Hurricanes were among 40 vintage aircraft flying in formation from Goodwood in West Sussex.

Hope you enjoy the video and the photos I have posted, the picture with the three airmen features my late brother, he is on the left. Thinking about him and my memories of the war, the blitz and the air raid shelters that I spent so many cold and fearful nights in.

God Bless and keep reading.
