Churchill: 'The few'

Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965) commemorated the role of the Royal Air Force in the Battle of Britain in this single sentence. The speech was made to the House of Commons on 20 August 1940.

The recording actually dates from 1951, Churchill having been persuaded by the BBC to record (or re-record) many of the speeches made during the War years.
