Across England there are scores of monuments commemorating the British people's sacrifices in war.
Most stand silent and proud in memory of those tragic days. Few are places of celebration. Even fewer have Fosters on tap!
Founded in 1938, The Airman pub's location, next to Hanworth Air Park, made it popular with RAF pilots during the war. It was also a target for the German air force, the Luftwaffe, and its car park was bombed during the Blitz.
Purchased two years ago by Spirit Group, the pub's new managers have tried to maintain its links with its past and have many longtime patrons.
"One RAF bloke has been coming here since the place was opened," said Jon Ellershow 33, who has been manager since last August.
According to one patron, who has been a regular since 1972 and whose father was also a local, the smoking ban has hit the pub. "It's been struggling a bit lately," he said.
The pub caters for families, with a children's playground behind it and youngsters welcome until 9pm.
There is also a patio at the front where adults can enjoy the sun or a smoke. Opening hours: Sunday-Thursday, noon-11pm; Friday and Saturday 11am-midnight.
