"Local Heroes" by rOEN911 "Local Heroes" by rOEN911
Winston Churchill summed up the effect of the battle and the contribution of Fighter Command with the words, "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few". Pilots who fought in the Battle have been known as The Few ever since....They become "The Local Heroes"

Looks like its taking part on the coast near Dover. The white cliffs suggest it anyway.

Wow. I have to say, your work is %*@#'in AMAZING! I so love all the tiny little details (the "spent" ammo cartridges, the pilot "bailing out", the Cliffs of Dover "peeking out" through the clouds...) I also quite appreciate all the "factoids" that you include with each of your pieces of Artwork. Absolutely brilliant! 10 stars (out've 10)- Your work is "spot on"! Call me an adoring fan... Peace. Hugh
