The Battle of Britain was remembered in Banbury on Sunday when a WW2 Hurricane fighter plane flew above the town as hundreds of onlookers lined the streets below.
The famous battle was fought in the skies above southern England in the summer and autumn of 1940 and the RAF’s defeat of the Luftwaffe was a major factor in preventing Hitler’s forces from invading England. The Hurricane was one of the aircraft that secured the victory.
Banbury’s tribute to those who took part in the airborne conflict began with a military and civic parade that marched from Broad Street to St Mary’s Church.
Members of the public packed the pavements to applaud as service men and women, veterans and cadets were joined in the procession by town mayor John Colegrave, councillors and guests.
After a memorial service, the parade lined up in Horsefair for the flypast before marching back down High Street to take the salute near the bandstand.
Leader of Banbury Town Council Kieron Mallon said:
“The Battle of Britain was a crucial part of WW2. It is important that we pay tribute to the brave men and women who defended this country in the most courageous way. They must never be forgotten.”
