The Battle of Britain commenced at the beginning of June 1940, and for the next two and a half gruelling months the young men of RAF Fighter Command duelled with the cream of the Luftwaffe over the skies of southern England. It was to become the greatest aerial conflict in aviation history.

Always outnumbered, the valiant young pilots fought with a determined fierceness and intensity, and never once did their spirit waver. By the end of September the battle was won, but many had made the ultimate sacrifice.
