Windsor commemorates those who died in the Battle of Britain

Traffic was temporarily halted while a crowd gathered outside the Parish Church in Windsor to commemorate those who fought and died in the Battle of Britain in the Second World War.


About 50 people watched as a squad of air cadets from the Royal Air Force Association marched from Park Street to the church in the High Street yesterday before laying wreaths on the war memorial.

“Let us remember with thanks giving those who gave their lives so that we might live,” were the words of Reverend Ainsley Swift to the silent crowd.

A service then took place in the church and the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Richard Kellaway, delivered a speech acknowledging that the sacrifice of those who died will be remembered for generations to come.

A similar service was also held in Maidenhead.
