The RAF's Battle of Britain Memorial Flight comprises three main aircraft - the Spitfire, the Lancaster and the Hurricane. The Lancaster played no part in the Battle of Britain and the Spitfire is the aeroplane many people most associate with the RAF during World War II, but the Hurricane is the hero that won the Battle of Britain.
The Hurricane served in every theatre during the Second World War as a fighter, night fighter, ground attack aircraft and even on board ship guarding vital convoys.

Approximately 11 million people were killed during the Holocaust. No one will ever know the exact figure. Of those, some six million were Jewish, including one million children. The remainder comprised numerous ethnic and social groups deemed the Untermenschen, the sub-human species that, according to the German Chancellor Adolf Hitler and the ruling Nazis, were not fit to live.
The Holocaust explores the background to this most barbaric of crimes, looking at the ideology behind it, the people who set it in motion and the principal events that shaped it.
“Nothing will connect new audiences with our past more than this personal testimony from beyond the grave”. Dan Snow
