Battle of Britain Memorial 2

Hi folks, as you know yesterday we visited the Battle of Britain Memorial and just to complete the days visit here are the concluding images. First up a poem on a plaque by the wall called Our Wall by William Walker.


The Christopher Foxley-Norris Memorial wall. we all found it very moving.



Below a bunch of flower laid by the fallen names.


Air Chief Marshal Sir Keith Park's bust.


Back at the Hunting Lodge I looked up at the weather vane as we entered for a cup of tea.


Lastly the famous writing on the Beaverbrook wall that symbolizes the second word war.

" Never in the field of human conflict was much so owed by so many to so few"  Winston Churchill


Sorry the images were a bit dull due to the overcast day, the next day it snowed heavy

We all left a bit sad on this gloomy day mindful of all the lives sacrificed during the war so that we can walk free.

Thanks for looking.

Best regards, Mike, Sue and Margaret.

  4. Like me you can't wait for the weather to change. Dull or not you manage to get out.

    I'm having my fence done so I will have to wait a little bit longer.


    I like the reflection off of the three walls (first three), Mike
