Battle of Britain Service

September 15 @ 10:45 am - 12:00 pm

  The Battle of Britain was a military campaign of the Second World War, in which the RAF defended the United Kingdom against large scale attacks by the German air force, the Luftwaffe. We officially recognise the battle’s duration as being from 10th July until 31st October 1940. It was a British success and led Winston Churchill to coin his famous words in his wartime speech “Never was so much owed by so many to so few” on 20th August 1940.

                                           


At All Saints’ this year we are holding a Battle of Britain Service on Sunday 15th September at 10.45 am we will have members of our local RAF Air Cadets 2493 (Alsager) Squadron present and their locally famed Drum Band together with members of 95 (Crewe) Squadron. We hope that you will be able to join us at this service as we gather to remember the sacrifice paid by those airman in 1940 and support our young people who are considering military careers in the future to defend the United Kingdom.
