In memory of the few

Battle of Britain commemorated at Carrot Park last weekend.

Members of the 101 Squadron, 888 (Komox) Wing and Canadian Rangers were among those who came out to Carrot Park Sunday to commemorate the Battle of Britain.

The event rounded out a busy weekend for the 101, who performed a final dedication at a memorial cairn in Haida Gwaii Saturday before returning that night for the annual President’s Appreciation Dinner to celebrate 15 years of achievements and being named ‘Wing of the Year’ by the Air Force Association of Canada.

The annual Battle of Britain parade pays tribute to those involved in the aerial battle. The conflict saw the RAF repel the advances of the Luftwaffe over Britain, and the pilots involved were the ‘few’ in Churchill’s famous words: “Never…was so much owed by so many to so few.”
