A short service at the National Memorial to the Few at Capel-le-Ferne on Battle of Britain Day, Saturday, 15 September, will once again mark the sacrifice made by RAF aircrew in 1940.
The service, which has become an annual event at the clifftop memorial site, will include a flypast by a Second World War Spitfire, provided by Fly with a Spitfire founder Stephen Burt.
The short commemoration service will be led by the Rev. Andy Bawtree, Vicar of River. Members of the public who wish to pay their respects to the bravery and sacrifice of the men Churchill called ‘the Few’ are invited to gather at the site, on the B2011 Dover road out of Folkestone, at 10.45am.
The Spitfire flypast is being provided by Action Stations as part of a three-day event to commemorate the Battle of Britain.
The Spitfire – accompanied by two helicopters carrying camera-toting enthusiasts – will be making regular flights over the Memorial from next Thursday 13 through to Saturday 15 and will be joined by a Hawker Hurricane on the Thursday.
