ARMED FORCES DAY MEMORIAL CONVOY 2022

SOUTHWICK NEAR FAREHAM TO BASINGSTOKE, HAMPSHIRE

Fundraising with and for the Royal British Legion (Riders Branch)

This event is based on the highly successful and UK unique D-DAY 75th Anniversary Convoy of more than 60 military vehicles, which travelled from Southwick Park to the former WW2 American airfield at Greenham Common, Berkshire (50 miles) on 22 June 2019.  This commemorated General Eisenhower’s journey along the same route on the afternoon of 5 June 1944.

Following this excellent event and suggestions by several of those taking part it has been decided to hold a similar run in 2022 to coincide with Armed Forces Day.  The format will be as follows:-

  1. West Meon Hut, West Meon, Hampshire. Additional vehicle joining station.
  2. Lasham Airfield, Alton, Hampshire. Coffee/comfort break and additional vehicle joining station.

Destination:

Milestones Living History Museum, Basingstoke, Hampshire, where an event is planned.

 

The overall distance is about 37 miles via the B2177/A32/A31/A339/Basingstoke Ring Road. It is hoped that tea/coffee and bacon rolls will be available at cost from the Golden Lion pub.
