    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.
