D-DAY COMMEMORATIVE CONVOY
The event will start at Southwick House on 25th June 2022 near Fareham in Hampshire and run to Milestones Museum in Basingstoke, a distance of about 37 miles. The object of the event is to raise funds for the Royal British Legion Riders’ Branch.
In order to avoid too much difficulty with traffic regulations the convoy may have to be restricted to 60 vehicles, which should be of Second World War vintage and of all allied nations.
Entry forms with full details will be sent nearer the time.
October club meeting is cancelled, see ya all in November for the Area AGM
There were some changes this year to the Goodwood Revival 2021 with Andy Kyte, Dave Piper and friends recreating RAF Westhampnett. The airfield was originally created on Goodwood Estate land which was donated by Freddie March, the 9th Duke of Richmond, the renowned amateur racer and aircraft engineer to assist the war effort. Known as RAF Westhampnett, it was active from July 1940 to May 1946 as a Battle of Britain station, and home to 43, 129, 145, 602 and 616 Squadrons, operating Hawker Hurricanes, P-51 Mustangs, and Supermarine Spitfires.
