“Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few”
These words were first spoken by the Prime Minster Winston Churchill on the 16th August 1940, upon leaving the No.11 Group Operations Room at RAF Uxbridge.
The Battle of Britain Bunker is the Royal Air Force’s primary Force Development and Public Engagement asset. The Bunker housed the Fighter Command No.11 Group Operations Room throughout the Second World War, the room from which most of the RAF’s side of the Battle of Britain was coordinated. Key decisions that would decide the fate of the nation were taken in the Bunker throughout 1940 and it was thanks to the tireless work of the plotters and controllers that the RAF’s fighter pilots managed to keep the Luftwaffe at bay.
