The British Armed Forces: A Legacy of Strength and Valor From the mighty HMS Hood, the last battlecruiser built for the Royal Navy, to the sleek Hawker Siddeley Nimrod MR2 soaring through the skies under the banner of the Royal Air Force, They have always stood at the forefront of military excellence. In World War II, brave pilots took to their Westland Lysander warbirds painted in iconic Royal Air Force colors, defending our nation with unwavering determination.
