We will remember them


Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.

Winston Churchill.


These famous words come from Churchill’s speech to the House of Commons during the Battle of Britain.  The ‘few’ refers to the pilots of the Royal Air Force, who were so heavily outnumbered and yet prevailed and in so doing provided much needed inspiration to all those involved in holding back and defeating what until that time had seemed an invincible enemy…

They shall grow not old,
as we that are left grow old;
age shall not weary them,
nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun
and in the morning,
we will remember them.
