History Remembered

We have collated the records of the Supermarine Spitfires lost during the Battle of Britain and represented 257 as a gratitude to the bravery of the service personnel involved.

The Battle of Britain

10th July - 31st October 1940

For over 100 years the Royal Air Force has defended British skies. In 1940 it experienced its greatest test in the Battle of Britain.

Using science, ingenuity, and support from across the UK and overseas, the RAF defended the UK from Nazi Germany’s air force, the Luftwaffe. It was the first major battle fought entirely in the air, and Nazi Germany’s first major military defeat.

This victory was made possible by the hard work and determination of 'The Many', to the courage and sacrifice of 'The Few' - the 2,945 RAF aircrew who faced the Luftwaffe from July to October 1940.

Major Battle Fought Completely in the air

Defence

During the Battle of Britain, the Luftwaffe was dealt an almost lethal blow from which it never fully recovered. 

'The Few'

2,945 RAF aircrew who faced the Luftwaffe from July to October 1940 were recognised by Churchill's famous speech.

1940

Adolf Hitler had expected the British to seek a peace settlement after Germany’s defeat of France in June 1940, but Britain was determined to fight on.
