The Battle of Britain Memorial is inspired by the skeletal structure of a Spitfire's wing; soaring into the sky above the Thames Estuary just outside London. The memorial is made of steel sections engraved with the names of the RAF fighters that lost their lives during World War II and serves as a focal point for Battle of Britain and WWII remembrance services.
