Churchill, Winston - Owed by so many to so few

“The gratitude of every home in our island, in our Empire, and indeed throughout the world, except in these abodes of the guilty, goes out to the British airmen who undaunted by the odds, unwearied in their constant challenge and mortal danger, are turning the tide of the world war by their prowess and by their devotion. Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.”

A tribute to the Royal Air Force, House of Commons 20 August, 1940
