Quote of the day 17th September 2015

"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."

(Winston Churchill, tribute to the RAF pilots who were fighting what later became known as the Battle of Britain 75 years ago this summer. House of Commons, 20 August 1940.)
