The idea behind LSL is to create a lasting recognition to the brave Battle of Britain Pilots with a specific focus on a central figurehead in Wing Commander Piotr Łaguna. These brave pilots whom were so pivotal in the outcome of the Second World War, were coined by Sir Winston Churchill as “The Few”.
