The 15th of September marks the anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

That day in 1940 was the height of the battle, and the Prime Minister Winston Churchill made it quite clear that, in his view, we could not have won the war without the courage, dedication, sacrifice and hard won success of the Royal Air Force during the Battle of Britain.

Now 76 years on, to mark the occasion as we do every year, RAF Halton held a Battle Of Britain Service of Remembrance at St George’s Church.  The Station Commander, Wing Commander Niki Stacey, was joined by personnel from across the Whole Force to mark the anniversary with readings, song and reflection.
