​Mansfield remembers the Battle of Britain

Mansfield remembers the Battle of Britain

Events took place over the weekend to mark the 76th anniversary of one of the most significant periods of the Second World War, when British forces fought the Luftwaffe in the skies above the UK.

Mansfield's 384 Squadron of Air Cadets commemorated Battle of Britain Day in the Mansfield market place, alongside representatives from the RAF Wings charity. Rick Richardson from the charity said “these guys gave their lives to secure our freedom. At the end of the day, we might have speaking German if it wasn't for what they did. And what they did in those days is the same as what guys have been doing recently in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

Money raised over the weekend will help to support both current and former RAF personnel, as well as assisting their families.
