Seventy years on, this still demands to be remembered. But who will? This is one of the better stories from the BBC website
, showing how memories of the Battle are fading.A Fading Finest Hour?
Further, why would the British educational system downgrade coverage of the Battle, and allow this fight for liberty to lose recognition among later generation? My own thought is that the Blitz and the evacuations affected millions of civilians, and that they might be regarded as more accessible and "relevant" to students than the efforts of a few fighter pilots. This is not to denigrate the significance of any of these events, but I would think that the Battle of Britain was triaged down in relation to the events that directly affected the civilian population.
