Call for Lincoln residents to help RAF with special Battle of Britain mosaic

The Royal Air Force is asking people in Lincolnshire to help create a commemorative mosaic to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

The aim of the mosaic is to raise awareness of the pilots and aircrew that fought in the battle, but also the unsung heroes whose contribution during the Battle of Britain was also vital to the RAF’s victory in the skies.

Members of the public are encouraged to upload a photo of their own choice to the mosaic, whether it’s a “selfie” or a family member who fought in the war.

The mosaic is an iconic photograph of Hurricane and Spitfire fighters in close formation and is initially composed of RAF archive images, which will be replaced as members of the public upload their own photos.

Once a photo is on the mosaic it can be easily located using a search button on the mosaic web page.

It is expected that a large artwork poster of the mosaic will be reproduced and exhibited in the RAF museum in North London as part of the Battle of Britain commemorations in September.
