Deployed U.K. forces pay tribute to “The Few”

Royal Air Force service members respectfully stand at attention as Capt. Haley Armstrong plays “Last Post” and “Reveille” on her trumpet during the Battle of Britain Day parade ceremony at the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing in Southwest Asia, Sept. 20, 2013. The RAF holds this day special as it was the day the Luftwaffe embarked on their largest bombing attack yet, forcing the engagement of the entire RAF Fighter Command in defense of London and the South East, which resulted in a decisive victory in favor of Britain and marked a turning point in the war. Armstrong is the U.S. Air Forces Central Command band officer in charge deployed from Yokota Air Base, Japan, and hails from Sonora, Calif. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Benjamin W. Stratton)
