Today is Battle of Britain Day, the day of the most intense fighting of the Battle when Goering sent his massed forces in a final attempt to destroy the RAF over London in an operation code-named Eagle Day. This day invariably turned the tide of the Battle and no doubt caused Hitler to postpone and then ultimately cancel Operation Sealion, saving the British Isles from an attempted invasion, if not a full scale occupation. Is no-one else apart from me hugely miffed that there is not one mention of this in the meeja today? It must be because they're all so frightened about how fragile their unimportant existences are. Well I for one will be remembering those who fought and died in the skies during that long hot summer, so long ago... "On Weald of Kent I watched once more, Again I heard the grumbling roar, Of fighter 'planes, yet none were near, Borne on the wind, a whisper came, 'Though men grow old, they stay the same', And then I knew, unseen to eye, The ageless Few were sweeping by."
