Mayor of Harrow attends Battle of Britain service at St John’s Church, in Stanmore
The Mayor of Harrow paid tribute to people from the borough who fought in the Battle of Britain at a remembrance service.
The Mayor of Harrow councillor Nana Asante was joined by people from the area, Harrow's Deputy Lieutenant, John Purnell, Air Cadets and ex servicemen and women at St John’s Church, Stanmore yesterday.
The church has had a long involvement with the RAF and Bentley Priory, which was the headquarters for flight command during the Battle of Britain in WWII.
Cllr Asante said: “We must never forget the enormous sacrifices made during the Battle of Britain. The role Bentley Priory played in the ultimate victory is a source of great pride for the borough.
“I was delighted to see so many cadets at this year's service and it felt incredibly poignant to see the younger generation paying their respects.”
