Battle of Britain Commemoration parade

Air Cadets from 1260 Squadron, Newark & District Air Cadets took part in the annual Battle of Britain Commemoration parade in Newark town centre on Sunday 9 September 2018.

Organised by the Royal Air Force Association (RAFA), this event commemorated 75 years since Sunday, 15 September 1940, when the Luftwaffe launched its largest and most concentrated attack against London in the hope of drawing out the RAF into a battle of annihilation. Around 1,500 aircraft took part in the air battles which lasted until dusk and became known as the climax of the Battle of Britain.
