This year is the seventieth anniversary of the Battle Of Britain, and there's various events going on to mark it.

I heard on the radio that there was a big event in town today, including a flypast of Spitfires, so I headed into town to the Ministry Of Defence, as I knew they had a Spitfire on display there.

I saw the Spitfire but there was no sign of any event going on. I later heard on the radio that they had unveiled a statue nearby, I think in Waterloo Place, off Pall Mall. Wherever it was, I missed it!

In the picture opposite, the Spitfire looks quite small because it is next to a "larger than life" statue of Monty!

Also took a picture of some buildings opposite the main door of the MOD because they looked pretty stunning and I thought the tree made a nice contrast to them. I don't know what the buildings are. Judging by their location I would say they were Government buildings. If so, it's nice to know I have a share in such prime properties.

It was quite a nice sunny day but very windy and a tad on the cold side in the shade. I think the summer is about done.
