The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh have been Kent today - to meet some of the last remaining members of The Few - the pilots who defended Britain from invasion in 1940. The Queen opened the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust's new visitor centre at Capel-le-Ferne - following in the footsteps of her mother, who unveiled the memorial at the cliff-top site in 1993. As the events of World War two fade from living memory the centre is designed to teach and remind the younger generations of the sacrifices made. Sarah Saunders reports.
