Romford MP commemorates Battle of Britain

The Romford MP’s father served in the RAF during the Second World War.

Andrew Rosindell has commemorated the Battle of Britain as a personal ‘day of reflection.’

Commemorations are taking place across the UK today to mark the 80th anniversary.

The momentous air campaign was the first to be fought entirely in the skies. It was a decisive win for the RAF over the Nazis.

The Romford MP’s father served in the RAF during the Second World War.

MP Andrew Rosindell said: “Eighty years ago, this country stood alone against the forces of evil. Europe had been brought to heel by the monstrous force of Nazism.

“On this day in 1940, in an enormous national effort, the Luftwaffe met its match as our brave pilots defended this island.

“For me personally this day is one of reflection. My own father, Frederick William Rosindell, served in the RAF during the Second World War, although not during the Battle of Britain.

“It is also especially poignant reflecting on this moment in history during the present crisis, when once again we are engaged in a national effort, albeit against a very different enemy.

“I have every confidence that we will once again prevail, and enter into a new period of prosperity.”

A special exhibition is being held at the Imperial War Museum in London.

Light shows at air force bases are also taking place across the country to honour the fight.
