On This Day

[ 10.7.2017 ]

The Battle of Britain begins. 

A defining moment for the nation, and pilots on both sides of the channel. In this poster we reflect on the Scramble. Pilots would have to be ready to fly at a moment's notice - many of them never to return. The psychological strength it would have taken must have been enormous. 

Churchill's infamous 'Never was so much owed by so many to so few' speech is featured in the background in morse code.
