About this scrapbook page:
For the Fabulous Forties. The Battle of Britain is commemorated each year in the UK on September 15th. In addition to 2341 British airmen that participated in the battle, there were some 595 non-British pilots that joined the RAF and fought. (It is estimated that by the commemoration in 2010 their numbers were down to 90 remaining veterans)

all the images are internet stock from various battle of britain websites.
the two backgrounds and frame are by elodesigns romantic spring kit.
