Support the Campaign and Petition

We, the undersigned, are aware that there is no permanent memorial or statue to Air Chief Marshal Sir Keith Park GBC, KBE, MC and Bar, DFC, RAF who was in direct command of the pilots and all those who helped them defend London, the South East and the whole country from invasion during the Battle of Britain in 1940. We are aware that there is a statue currently being commissioned and agree that a suitable position to occupy is the 4th Plinth in Trafalgar Square, where Sir Keith Park would join other heroes.
