    The events leading up to and including the Battle of Britain by Chris Wren MBE.
    Chris is the curator of the WW2 underground bunker and museum at RAF Uxbridge built in 1939 some 60 feet below ground.
    He will introduce personalities of the time including Douglas Barder who had a flying accident not far from the clubhouse and the most successful fighter squadron at the time.
    Churchill visited the bunker during one confrontation and enquired what reserves we had – the answer was “none” It was after this visit that Churchill coined the phrase

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

    There is lots of talk at the moment about Dunkirk – About 30 days after Dunkirk a new battle started – the Battle of Britain.

    Dunkirk would have been stressful to put it mildly, now add a new battle this time from the air.

    In the summer and fall of 1940 this country was under a threat of invasion. Some 600 young pilots, average age 20, took on the might of the Luftwaffe with their more than 3000 aircraft. By the autumn the battle was over with the RAF being successful. They employed better aircraft, better communications, radar and a lot of luck.

    Britain’s decisive victory saved the country from a ground invasion and possible occupation by German forces.

    Fighter Command group, No. 11 controlled from the bunker at RAF Uxbridge, saw the most action instigating the destruction of a substantial proportion of the 1,733 total enemy losses.
