The Battle of Britain was a major air campaign in the Second World War that took place between July and October 1940. The Battle of Britain Memorial in Folkestone is dedicated to the 3,000 men of the RAF that took part, who Winston Churchill referred to as The Few. It features a statue of a lone pilot, replica aircraft, a Memorial Wall, and The Scramble Experience. Visitors learn what it would have been like for the fighters in 1940 through special effects and a video wall.
