ARMED FORCES DAY MEMORIAL CONVOY FOR THE FALLEN - 25th June

This is not a NOC event - but clearly one we support and promote......

AF

As part of this year’s Armed Forces Day, 25 June, there will be a Memorial Convoy for the Fallen and the organisers would like to see as many WW2 motorcycles as possible, including Norton 16H's as supplied to the war effort.

On 5 June 1944, General Dwight D Eisenhower travelled from D-Day HQ at Southwick House to Greenham Common, where he met troops including 502 PIR (Parachute Infantry Regiment).  This regiment was part of the 101st Airborne Division, and was in the first wave leaving Greenham Common on the night of 5 June to spearhead OPERATION OVERLORD, the Allied invasion of Occupied France.  The first paratroopers jumped at 00:16 hours on 6 June.  On Saturday 22 June (D+16) 2019, a re-run of the route travelled by Eisenhower from Southwick to Greenham was staged to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-DayBuilding on the experience of that convoy, the organisers have announced a special event to be presented on 25 June 2022 to coincide with Armed Forces Day. The Armed Forces Day Memorial Convoy, which will travel the shorter route of thirty-seven miles from Southwick House PO17 6EJ to Basingstoke RG22 6PG, is in memory of the Fallen of all Wars and would like to have some WW2 motorcycles either take part in the run, or form part of a display at the end of the run at the public event on the show field adjacent the Milestones Living History Museum.
