A talk to the boys at....

...the John Fisher School, Purley.

This is a school with which our family has a strong connection.

Its playing fields were once part of the famous CROYDON AIRPORT.  And it was from here that the Battle of Britain was fought in the summer of 1940.

Today, I gave a talk to the school's History Club about this, and then later attended Benediction in the school chapel, where a kneeler I had embroidered, commemorating the battle, was used.

And if you want to know more, you should read my book about Croydon Airport and the Battle of Britain.
