Brass Spitfire model

Handmade brass Spitfire desk ornament on a wooden base and a gold brass plaque with the quote
'Never was so much owed by so many to so few' - a wartime speech made by the British prime minister Winston Churchill on 20 August 1940.

The quote stems from the specific line in the speech, 'Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.' referring to the ongoing efforts of the Royal Air Force crews who were at the time fighting the Battle of Britain.

Pilots who fought in the battle have been known as The Few ever since; at times being specially commemorated on 15 September, "Battle of Britain Day".
