A special tribute to our Battle of Britain pilots
- Credit: Archant
They fought and won a battle for the life we have known and enjoyed for decades.
They became known as 'The Few' and their exploits - credited as saving Britain from an invasion by German forces - are the stuff of legend.
This week the nation pays its respects to The Few in ceremonies across the country - tomorrow is Battle of Britain day.
Some of the pilots and support staff who fought so valiantly and who watched many friends fly to their deaths, are still alive and honoured.
Their numbers drop each year which is why this year's 75 anniversary is so important.
