Adrienne's first parade as a brand new Air Cadet was today, for the Battle of Britain 70th Anniversary Parade. She just started last Monday. We all learned a bit more about this World War II battle as part of the homework she had to do.
"The Battle of Britain was the first major campaign to be fought entirely by air forces, and was also the largest and most sustained aerial bombing campaign to that date." (wikipedia)
