Remembrance Sunday 2017 – New Forest Airfields Memorial

The day started well; no rain, 4 members arrived at 10.15 am and started assembling the flag poles and flags. Four additional wreaths were displayed alongside the 7 wreaths placed on Saturday.                                                                                                                                  We had been advised that the 1st St Johns Troop Scouts from Woking would be camping in the area and wanted to come to our memorial and they arrived just as we were finishing the preparations. I arranged them as a group in front of the memorial to take a group photograph (see picture) before the crowd built up.                                                                     At 10.30 am the regular vintage clubs motor bikers started to arrive and they built up into a group of over 50 (see the pictures) and then the audio service started bang on 11.00 am. There was a session of discussions between the crowd present before the flags were removed ready for next June.                                                                                                       John Brooks Trustee and Former Chairman, FONFA
