H: Harveys Boys sing 'They Were The Few' (Their new song about The Battle Of Britain)
January 1970

This is a new song about The Battle of Britain composed and sung by Barry Turner and Tim Kent aka Harveys Boys. We hope this will become well known and played and sung by many people who remember this most significant event in 1940. We recorded this song way back in 2004 on our CD Harveys Best. We contacted the head of music at the RAF and he said it was not a song for a military band to play. 4 years later we had this song transposed for such a band and sent him the new version but without success. Tim has sung this song in its military style with The Petworth Town Band and it has been well accepted (see a later video in this collection). Please can someone see this song’s potential and publish it nationally…thank you
