Fly-past planned to remember The Few
VETERANS of the Battle of Britain will join dignitaries and members of the public at Capel on Sunday, July 8, for the annual service.
The national memorial to the Battle of Britain airmen on the clifftop will be the setting for the event, paying tribute to more than 500 comrades who were lost in the aerial battle fought between July and October 1940 at the point when Britain faced the threat of German invasion.
Leading the tributes will be Air Chief Marshal Sir Glenn Torpy, Chief of the Air Staff.
As well as the service and parade, visitors will be able to see a fly-past and display by Hurricane and Spitfire aircraft of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, subject to weather conditions, and an exhibition of vehicles from the Second World War.
The service begins at 1pm. There is no charge for admission to the site.
