More than 50 airmen will march through Stafford today (September 15th) as part of the Battle of Britain commemorations.

Hundreds are expected to turn out to watch the parade that will remember the 1940 aerial battle of World War II.

The airmen, who are part of the Tactical Supply Wing of the RAF, are based in the town's Beacon Barracks. They will be exercising their Freedom of the Borough.
