On Thursday 13 September 2012, Officers from the Defence School of Transport and E Flight, 202 Squadron held a lunch in memory of the Battle of Britain and ‘The Few’, the title given to the pilots who fought in the Battle of Britain by Winston Churchill.
Many of ‘The Few’ were in their late teens or early twenties and were acclaimed for the part they played in World War Two.
Before the lunch Officers from the Army, RAF and Royal Navy gathered outside of the Officers’ Mess to watch an extremely noisy Tornado GR4 fly past conducted by XV(R) Squadron from RAF Lossiemouth.
OC E Flight, Squadron Leader Stu Gwinnutt said “E Flight 202 Squadron is the sole RAF Lodger Unit at Normandy Barracks, the home of the Defence School of Transport, an organisation which is led by Army Colonel Paul Ash. Therefore, the Battle of Britain Lunch is a great way of celebrating the RAF’s finest hour, remembering ‘The Few’ and the heritage of what used to be RAF Leconfield.
