Royal Air Force: "The gratitude of every home in our Island, in our Empire, and indeed throughout the world, except in the abodes of the guilty, goes out to the British airmen who, undaunted by odds, unwearied in their constant challenge and mortal danger, are turning the tide of the World War by their prowess and by their devotion. Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."
The evil forces of Hitler met their first defeat in the skies over Britain, and it is no exaggeration to say that if Britain had fallen, the world would have been plunged into darkness. So today we salute all of those who fought, with and without guns, in the Battle of Britain.
