Battle of Britain Sunday

Recommended Posts

I just brought down my RCAF Ensign,

Today was Battle of Britain Sunday here.

It was commemorated in our Church and others in the Commonwealth.

As an air force brat, I was privileged to meet and know some of the pilots of the battle, who were still around.

Per ardua ad astra

God Bless.

I had the privilege to correspond with, then meet for several hours, Air Commodore Sir Archie Winskill, a Spitfire ace and Battle of Britain pilot (who flew also in Circus and Torch). A great man; one of the Few.


My own grandfather, Edward F. W. Winskill, a Canadian, was a Royal Airforce Pilot in the First World War.
