Join us to mark special day

Tomorrow, Thursday 15 September, marks Battle of Britain Day, commemorating what was probably the turning point of the aerial conflict in the summer and early autumn of 1940.

The Luftwaffe mounted a major offensive on that day but suffered heavy losses at the hands of the Royal Air Force, causing Nazi leader Adolf Hitler to rethink - and later abandon - his invasion plans.

The Battle of Britain Memorial Trust marks this special day with a short Service of Remembrance each year - marking the day itself rather than the closest Sunday.

Please join us at the National Memorial to the Few just before 11am to mark the sacrifice and bravery of the men who gave their all in 1940. The Cockpit Cafe will be open for warming refreshments if the weather is unkind.
