Just a heads up for one of those events you need to book tickets for sharpish.
On June 27th, a day of events will happen at the Chatham Dockyard as part of the national Armed Forces Day – which will be free to watch, but only for ticket holders.
The day will commence with a Celebration Parade through Chatham town centre featuring contingents from the three armed forces led by a Royal Marines Band.
Throughout the day, displays and activities will take place on land, water and in the air as some of the very best assets of the armed forces swing into action.
In the air, there will be flypasts by the Red Arrows and Hurricane, Spitfire and Lancaster of the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
Ticket request forms can be downloaded here (a separate evening event is sold out).
In related news, a veterans march over London’s Tower Bridge along with a flypast will occur on Friday 26th June at noon.
