Terry Clark, Battle of Britain veteran, and the second last of " The Few", died on the eve of VE Day at the age of 101. Now there is only one left : John Hemingway aged 100, who lives in an old age home in Ireland

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-york-north-yorkshire-52592965

When Mr. Hemingway finally goes to his reward; EVERY free nation should have a day of mourning for those brave young men who quite literally stopped the Nazis from invading Britain and consuming western Europe. Only God knows the consequences of Hitler and Mussolini having a free hand in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East

Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few,

Clear skies sir and God bless you sir

RIP

So 80 years later we are now down to one British pilot who fought during the Battle of Britain. It's almost surreal.

End of an era. Great men.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

You are what you do when it counts

I will do terrible things to protect myself and all that I've worked for.
But even in your deepest, darkest nightmares you can't imagine the horrific things I'll do to protect my family.
