Battle of Britain Monument Victoria Embankment
Battle of Britain Monument at Victoria Embankment in London
The Battle of Britain took place from 10th July -31st October 1940. The outcome of WWII would have turned out differently had the Germans won.
NEVER IN THE FIELD OF HUMAN CONFLICT WAS SO MUCH OWED BY SO MANY TO SO FEW.”
Winston Churchill, 20 August 1940
In 2014, at one of the times I have taken part in the Royal Park Foundation Half marathons in London, I suddenly saw a glimpse of this impressive monument at the running route along the Thames. Later that day after the race, we walked via White Hall to Parliament Square, Westminster Bridge and further on to Victoria Embankment to see it and to take the photos.
Next time in London, I will get all of the scenes from this war memorial from 2005 by sculptor Paul Day.
