The Few is a term used to describe the Allied airmen of the Royal Air Force who fought the Battle of Britain in the Second World War. It comes from Winston Churchill's phrase "Never, in the field of human conflict, was so much owed by so many to so few". It also alludes to Shakespeare's famous speech in his play, Henry V: "We few, we happy few, we band of brothers...". Of the 3,000 "few" (approx) who fought in the Battle of Britain, very few are still alive; hence "The Last of the Few." Although these lads (and lasses on the ground) did their noble stuff four years before fbb was born, we all need to remain grateful for their service and sacrifice.
