Quotes

Mr Walker said: "I am always delighted to meet and support local entrepreneurs, but it was especially exciting to find a local Worcester based business that is working where I work in Westminster. These buildings are iconic and I am still sometimes taken aback by the weight of history in a place like Westminster Hall. When the Houses of Parliament were bombed during the Battle of Britain, Winston Churchill let the Chamber of the House of Commons burn so that this, much older building could be saved, it is a huge responsibility for a business to be involved in conserving such a unique historic building."
...As Winston Churchill told his flock in England's "darkest hour" as they faced the extinction of their democratic freedoms, "I expect that the Battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilization. … If we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new dark age. … Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the BritishBritish Empire and its commonwealth last 4,000 years, men will still say, 'This was their finest hour.'"
Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum President and CEO, Sqn Ldr (Ret.) David G Rohrer C D who is a current Lancaster pilot, indicated that this year, "A rare window of opportunity was identified to bring the only two flying Lancasters in the world together as a special salute to all the veterans of Bomber Command, many of whom are now in their late 80s or older."
"The DFC is for the Battle of Britain. He was very much one of the "Few" who stopped Operation Sea Lion - Hitler's plan to invade Britain from happening."
