Thank you boys

A 70th anniversary tribute to the famous 'few' of the Battle of Britain. Before a generation decided there was nothing worth killing or dying for. Thanks for those who realized otherwise.

"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. All our hearts go out to the fighter pilots, whose brilliant actions we see with our own eyes day after day…"

Winston Churchill

It was indeed their finest hour.
