    My brother & I owe our existence to our hurricane & spitfire heroes. Our parents were married at St Luke’s on the Isle of Dogs on 31 August 1940 (mum lived on the island all through the blitz) & came out of the church to watch a dog fight taking place. We did some research as to who may have been scrambled at the time & I have models of George Unwin’s spitfire & Pete Brothers’ hurricane by their wedding photo. The calibre of this generation of truly remarkable young men will not be seen again. We will never forget their bravery, steadfastness & complete humility in the face of seemingly overwhelming odds. We applaud them all, those who have gone on their final scramble, the pilot veterans who are still with us & their ground/support crews

The calibre of this generation of truly remarkable young men will not be seen again. Their courage, steadfastness & complete humility in the face of seemingly overwhelming odds can never be matched. We will never forget them, both those who have now gone on their final scramble, the remaining pilot veterans & their ground/support crews.
