The quote on this poster is a very famous one by Winston Churchill to the victors of the Battle of Britain. The image has a movie-like quality, but shows undecorated sergeant-pilots, rather than commissioned officers. This subtly suggests that Britain was saved by representatives of the entire population, not social elites.
