EDITORS COMMENTS
- These famous words spoken by Sir Winston Churchill on 20th August 1940, during the height of the Battle of Britain, encapsulated the spirit of the British people and their unwavering support for the pilots of the Royal Air Force (RAF). This powerful motto, also known as the "Few," was a tribute to the bravery and sacrifice of the RAF airmen who fought to protect the United Kingdom from the relentless air attacks of the German Air Force (Luftwaffe) during World War II. The image on this vintage wartime poster, from the Mary Evans Picture Library/Onslow Auctions Limited collection, depicts an ornate design featuring the Latin phrase "Ad Astra Per Aspera," which translates to "To the Stars Through Difficulties." The poster's background showcases a star-studded night sky, symbolizing the pilots' journey into the unknown and the ultimate goal of victory. Churchill's speech, delivered at the Mansion House in London, was a morale-boosting address to the citizens of Britain, who were facing the harsh realities of war. The Prime Minister's inspiring words were a testament to the indomitable spirit of the British people and their unwavering belief in the RAF's ability to defend their homeland. This iconic poster, a reminder of the pivotal role the RAF played in the Battle of Britain and the larger World War II effort, is a powerful symbol of the resilience and determination of the human spirit in the face of adversity.
