Images of the Battle of Britain… (part 2)

Commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. On this day in 1940, the Luftwaffe embarked on their largest bombing attack yet, forcing the engagement of the entirety of the RAF in defence of London and the South East, which resulted in a decisive British victory that marked a turning point of the Battle.
