We will remember them.

The annual Battle of Britain Day is celebrated on September 15.

The day is dedicated to the large-scale aerial battle that took place from July 10 until October 31, 1940. The clash was said to be the first major military campaign fought entirely by air forces.

Britain's Royal Air Force defended the United Kingdom from attacks by Nazi Germany's Luftwaffe. British allies from many nations including Canada, Australia, Poland and New Zealand also took part.

In honour of the momentous event, September 15 has become an annual day to commemorate the Battle of Britain in the UK.
