    This service commemorates the Battle of Britain and the Commonwealth contribution to an Allied victory.

    Between July and October 1940 as a prelude to a German seaborne invasion of Britain, the German air force mounted daily attacks on British airfields, radar stations and cities; competing for air superiority and mass civilian damage (The Blitz).

    Pilots from many countries fought in the battle, with 35 Australians among them, of which 10 were killed in action.
