The Blitz

Today is the 70th anniversary of the first bombs falling on London in what became known as The Blitz. In the words Winston Churchill used just a few months earlier: "Never in the field of conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few".

A Spitfire outside St Paul's Cathedral today.

To all who those gave their all, the fire-fighters, nurses, ambulance men, boy scouts and, of course, The Few: thank you.
