    This beer is named after the depicted Battle of Britain class locomotive, which was named after Air Marshal Sir Keith Park the New Zealand W.W.1 flying Ace, who commanded No.11 Group during the Battle of Britain and later the air defence of Malta.

    Actually, in the U.K. quite a number of famous people have had railway trains named after them. Having mentioned the Battle of Britain, there is also this beer, although the sentiment could be applied to all wars.

    That is an old advertisement, Rob.

    This beer is currently on the brewers 'retired' list but it is of interest here is because it is named 'Finest Hour'.

    These ales were produced in 2016 to mark the centenary of 208 Squadron. It began life as No. 8 Squadron Royal Naval Air Service on 26th October 1916 flying a mixture of Sopwith Pups, Nieuport Scouts and Sopwith 1½ Strutters and became 208 Squadron when the R.N.A.S. and R.F.C. were merged into the R.A.F. in 1918. It finished life as an Advanced Training squadron flying Hawks and was disbanded and its standard laid up on 22nd May 2016.

    It was brewed in Virginia, Chris. I have tried to find a genuine Russian aviation themed beer. The closest I have come so far is this bottle cap bearing the logo of the Ivan Taranov brewery, which was bought by Heineken in 2005 and closed in 2016 because of falling sales.

    Parachutes have saved innumerable lives over the years, it is fitting that they get some recognition in and of themselves; but it does leave me to wonder, if there is a similar recognition of the inventor of the modern parachute, Louis-Sébastien Lenormand ?

    On December 23rd 1944, as the folk of Great Rollright village Oxfordshire prepared for Christmas, a tragedy occurred. At 6.15pm, that day the peace was shattered by the sound, of an American Boeing B-17 Bomber crashing near the village. Earlier that day the aircraft, a Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress serial number 43-38812 (‘812’) of the 749th Bomb Squadron, 457th Bomb Group, had taken off from RAF Portreath in Cornwall and was heading for its home base at RAF Glatton, near Peterborough. The bomber had, on December 19th, been diverted to Portreath after a bombing mission to Germany.After taking off for home on at approx 4.30pm on December 23rd, ‘812’ seemingly got lost on the way and eventually crashed into the trees near the Triangle at Great Rollright village at 6.15pm, killing the following crewmembers:

    Lt. Hendrickson – Pilot, Lt. Graves – Co-Pilot, F/O Williams – Bombardier/Gunner, F/O Kilmer – Navigator, T/Sgt. Riedel – Radio Operator, T/Sgt. Bruer – Flight Engineer/Gunner, Sgt. Hawley – Waist Gunner, S/Sgt. Fitzgerald – Ball gunner

    There was only one survivor of the crash, the Tail Gunner Sgt Clifford A. Heinrich
