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

Flight Lt. Claire Wells addresses those in attendance during the Battle of Britain Day parade ceremony at the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing in Southwest Asia, Sept. 20, 2013. Winston Churchill summed up the effect of the battle and the contribution of Fighter Command with the words, “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.” Pilots who fought in the battle have been known as ‘The Few’ ever since. Wells is an 83 Expeditionary Air Group detachment administration officer. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Benjamin W. Stratton)
