    That is true. It's a silly title as Britain has never forgotten the contribution to the Battle of Britain made by all of its commonwealth and European allies.

    Not forgotten by me - or the disgraceful abandonment of Poland in late WW2 realpolitik deals done between Rooslvelt Stalin.

    I called in at the RAF Chapel at Biggin last week (worth a stop!!) and you get a real sense of the debt we owe to other many, many other nations for the BoB win

    IMO the Poles (and Czechs) flying Hurricanes were absolutely decisive. Plus their contribution to Bomber Command shouldn't be overlooked
