September 15 – Belfast school’s seven Battle of Britain pilots. Roll of Honour

On this day in 1940, nearly 1,500 aircraft were in the skies over Britain, as the Luftwaffe attacked London. It is regarded as the climax of the Battle of Britain when the tide begins to turn as the Royal Air Force repulses a major Luftwaffe attack, losing 29 aircraft to the Germans’ 57-61. Today’s Roll includes the second and third North Irish Horse fatalities in WW1, three men who returned with Canadian and New Zealand forces, and a female private in the ATS in WW2
