For the Fabulous Forties. The Battle of Britain is commemorated each year in the UK on September 15th.

This is awesome Mike, with the map of the UK and the newspapers along with the plane blended in to beautifully! My hubby's Mom lived through a bombing in I think it was Sandringham (?) she sent pictures to us of their place...it must have been horrendous! Your page is so well done!

Wonderful historical layout. Amazing all the things that happened during that time...I wish I had my dad's stories from his time in England during the war, but he never talked about it.
