There is text on the back of this photo labelled "Mess 7/1977" as follows: WARTIME HEROES When this picture was taken our country had just survived the horror of the Battle of Britain, when its destiny seemed to hang precariously in the balance against overwhelming Nazi odds. To the devout, this titanic air battle provided proof of a kindly Providence which preserved this bastion of religious liberty, and thereby the world, against brutal neo-paganism. It also occasioned one of the most memorable of Churchill's comments: 'Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.' The time, of course, was the summer of 1940. Engaged in a vastly more fateful battle were the above ministerial workers of the North England Conference – mostly young men and women who heroically laboured on the evangelistic battlefront, despite nightly bombs, blackouts, and inevitable disruptions in a country which, alone of all the warring nations whether Axis or Allies, directed its total resources into the will to win. We are indebted to Miss Elsie Pratt, Bible instructor, now retired, and a member of the Watford Town church, for sending us this picture.
