18 Spitfires and six Hurricanes took part in a re-enactment of the fighting which took place on that day, when Bromley's Biggin Hill and other military bases in the South East came under attack from the German Luftwaffe.

The special commemoration honoured all the pilots, engineers, operations staff, ground crews and other military personnel who faced attack that day.
