The Royal Air Forces Association is holding a special Centenary Service to commemorate 100 years of the RAF at the Runnymede Air Forces Memorial.
This is an opportunity to pay our respects to all the brave men and women of the RAF past and present and especially to the 20,458 members of the Commonwealth Air Forces, who have no know grave and who paid the ultimate sacrifice by giving their lives in the Second World War to save our country. Unlike the November Armistice Day Service this time it will be in the sweltering heat of mid-May, so shirt sleeve order and shiny boots.
Meet at Newlands Corner for a PROMPT 9.30am departure. We will take a country route (no motorways) to arrive at Runnymede Royal Air Force Memorial for 10.45am. The 45 minute service starts at 11am, so afterwards we can ride off to a suitable watering hole to swap stories and still be home in time to cut the lawn before the usual Sunday afternoon game of croquet.
We will be riding to the legal speed limits and all riders are responsible for their own ride and safety.
