Marking Battle of Britain Day

Visitors paused to pay their respects alongside local people, Trustees, staff and volunteers as the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust held its annual Service of Commemoration to mark Battle of Britain Day on Saturday (15 September).

Around a dozen standard bearers added colour to the short service to pay tribute to the bravery and sacrifice of the men Churchill called “the Few”.

In bright sunshine, the Last Post marked the start of the traditional two minutes of silence, following which wreaths were laid on behalf of a number of organisations.

Those present also enjoyed a flypast by a Spitfire and Hurricane from Aero Legends at Headcorn, together with a de Havilland Dove carrying passengers alongside the two iconic fighters.
