Thousands of messages paying tribute to all the men and women who contributed to the outcome of the Battle of Britain have been sealed in a time capsule to mark 80 anniversary of the famous battle’s end.The Royal Air Forces Association, which provides support to the RAF community, invited members of the public to document their gratitude so that future generations could experience the groundswell of appreciation felt by people in 2020.The tributes inside the capsule included many from people whose family members served, and, in some cases, died, in the RAF during the Battle of Britain when heroic pilots defeated the Germans. Others were written by serving and former RAF personnel paying tribute to their predecessors, while the majority were from members of the public who simply wanted to thank ‘The Many’ involved.If you will visit London one day, remember about visiting the Polish War Memorial stands at RAF Northolt, commemorating Polish pilots who served and died both for their country and for Europe.Remember about all the heroes from above the clouds.
