Take to the skies for Red, White and Blue Day 2015 - Friday 9th October (or any day in October or November 2015)

"Never, in the field of human conflict, was so much owed by so many to so few" said Winston Churchill, honouring the brave young men and women of the RAF who kept British skies safe from German invasion. Now 75 years later, "The Few" will be remembered during this year's Red, White and Blue Day in schools across the country.

Taking place on 9th October, or any day of your choice during October & November the event will feature specially created lesson plans and films which tell the story of how the RAF beat back the Luftwaffe from the skies of England during September 1940. The Battle of Britain also saw the start of "The Blitz", the German bombing campaign that attacked many cities across the UK.

There will be many activities taking place up and down the country marking the anniversary of the Battle of Britain in the build to RWBDay15. A competition for school children to design a World War Two (WW2) propaganda poster is currently underway. The winners will have their designs printed and framed, with the runners up receiving book tokens.

Red, White and Blue Day is a national fundraising campaign for schools run annually by the three national Service charities. It's an opportunity for children to come to school dressed in red, white and blue and to donate just £1 to support the work of ABF The Soldiers' Charity, the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, and The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity.
