RAF Halton commemorates the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain
RAF Halton’s Station Commander, Group Captain Dan Startup, led the commemoration of the 80th Anniversary of the end of the Battle of Britain yesterday evening with a Sunset Ceremony at Halton House Officers’ Mess. The flypast was by a Spitfire from the Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight.
Group Captain Startup said: “It was an honour and a privilege to be able to recognise, mourn and celebrate the Battle of Britain pilots and all those who supported those pilots, last night. I am heartened that the admiration and inspiration of The Few lives on amongst all at RAF Halton and in the Royal Air Force.”
