Remembering the few

Many people have been glued to the box this evening watching the world cup final. Many others will have been watching the commemoration of the Battle of Britain.

It may have become a cliche that, as Churchill said, "Never in the field of human conflict has so much been owed, by so many, to so few."

But it's also true. Our world today would have been unimaginably worse had not "the few" held off Hitler's luftwaffe. We should remember all those who fought on land, in or under the sea, or in the air, to save this country from fascism. The better we remember the lessons of that era, and their heroism, the less the risk that some future generation of our sons and daughters will be called on to repeat it.
