Battle of Britain chapel to 'the few' threatened with closure to save £50,000.

 

 

Winston Churchill said St George's Chapel of Remembrance on the site of the former RAF station at Biggin Hill in Kent should be a permanent shrine to ‘the few’ who gave their lives during the Battle of Britain.

The chapel floor is made of wood from wartime aircraft propellers and

stained glass windows commemorate the dead, whose names are inscribed

in a roll of honour.

This beautiful Chapel commemorates all those that made the ultimate sacrifice, this is the true cost, which should be payment enough.

 

Alas even this isn't enough!

 

It's disgusting to even think they would close it just to save, which in today's money £50.000 isn't a lot of money really.

 

I do hope we can honour Sir Winston Churchills words & keep the Chapel safe from closure!!

I fully appreciate that the MOD has to make cutbacks but this is going to far and as has been pointed out these people gave the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom we take for granted today.

Signed and shared on Facebook too. My dad was RAF air crew in WWII and although he survived (or I wouldn't be here!) I'm sure he'll have known many who didn't.

Let's hope this campaign gets lots of sigs. £50k, you would think this can be achieved from a coffer somewhere. My dad was also RAF.

It is good news on one hand but the MOD should be holding its head in shame that a uk organisation has again had to step in where the MOD fails.

 

Maybe the MOD needs to stop the perks it gives to its Top Brass as that would more than make up the difference.
