Union Flag Presentation
Mar 16 @ 13:00 – 14:30

To all travelling to the Flag Presentation…..

Given the current weather forecast for Saturday the Branch officers would urge members to use common sense when choosing their mode of transport. Obviously we want to see a large turnout but we would rather everyone stay safe, no-one will think any the worse of you if you turn up in a car!

BBC Weather prediction 15/03 @ 21:00

 

 

 

See below for RV and Timing details

In recognition of the continued selfless dedication by members from the Branch, who at extremely short notice and regardless of the weather turn out for the Repatriation of our fallen Service personnel, we are honoured to have been offered the Union Flag that flew in the Carterton Memorial Garden, into our safe keeping.  The Flag having recently been replaced with a new one.

The Presentation will be made by Cllr Norman MacRae, Armed Forces Champion West Oxford District Council.

Hampshire/Berkshire D-Day 75 Event
Jun 22 @ 07:30 – 09:15

• To date we have 34 confirmed WW2 military trucks with another 16 joining along the way travelling to Greenham Common in the convoy.
• I have 25 confirmed RBL Riders taking part in the convoy
• Vehicles/Bikes can arrive at the carparks outside MOD Southwick from 08:00 on Saturday 22nd June – Myself and a couple of others will be onsite to direct traffic as it arrives. I am going to suggest meeting at Monster Micks beforehand to grab a bite/drink and ride down together.
• JEEP are one of the sponsors of this event so there will be a couple of brand new jeeps in the convoy behind the escort bikes.
• There is a General Eisenhower lookalike taking part in this event and will be travelling from Southwick to Greenham in the convoy. The guest of honour is a lady called Marion Loveland who was a WREN at Collingwood on D-Day……………she was the Communications number between the Fleet and HQ, she also lost her fiance on Sword Beach that day.
• Before the convoy 12 of the trucks and 6 of the bikes will be chosen to go up to Southwick House for photos. Vehicles will be chosen on the day so I need your details and your bike details beforehand to pass onto the organiser just in case you and your bike need to go up to the house.
• There will be a short service lead by the Riders Bish……..Paul Miles Knight
• Due to the amount of vehicles involved the convoy is going to be split into two sticks with a delay of 5 to 10 mins between the two departing.
• We have permission from Hampshire Police and Thames Valley Police to block roundabouts and junctions to get the convoy through with as little disruption as possible. All Riders will wear Hi-viz on the ride.
• There will be an Auster Aircraft flying over the convoy taking pictures/filming on the day (subject to weather)
• Timings are subject to change but at the moment they are as follows:-

Southwick Park Arrive from 0800
Depart 1000 to 1030
Lasham Airfield Arrive 1145
Depart 1215
Milestones Museum Arrive 1300
Depart 1330
Sandford Springs Arrive 1430
Depart 1500
Greenham Common Arrive 1545

• The only addition to the timings is that Greenham is not the last stop and we will be going onto Newbury College afterwards for refreshments.
• The stop at Greenham will entail a drop in by the Poppy Parachute Team to symbolise the return of the troops who called Greenham their home (Subject to weather)
• Please fly flags on the day if you have them……….preferably the Union Flag and/or the Stars and Stripes (48 Star version)
• Even though I insist on Hi-Viz on the ride you are more than welcome to wear your Riders Cut at any or all of the stops.

Copy and paste the following and you ‘should’ see a copy of the route as it is right now: https://goo.gl/maps/U1amnmtjda42

My aim of the day is to get the convoy to Greenham Common together and to keep every Rider safe.

Branch National Rally
Jul 19 @ 14:00 – Jul 21 @ 16:00

 

It is with great pleasure that I can announce the 2019 National Rally will be held in Wales.

The facilities at the club are excellent. The main building is split into an upstairs concert room and a downstairs bar with conservatory. The club has a kitchen and will be cooking breakfast, lunch and evening meal. There is also a local Indian restaurant close by that will give a discount to the Riders.
There will be 24hr access to showers and toilets, also a tea/coffee room that will also have 24hr access.

There is sufficient secure hard standing for parking of the motorcycles (camping is on the practice pitch and therefore motorcycles will not be allowed by the tents.We also have an area for those who use a campervan/motorhome. Ticket Price £20 in advance, £25 on the gate as normal, there will be musical entertainment on the Friday and Saturday Night, A Ride-out for Saturday :ride: (we have a number of routes, which one will be decided by the weather, as you all know the sun always shines in Wales)

Phil T will be organising rideouts on some great riding roads and for the race fans amongst you the (in)famous Aberdare Park Race meeting is the same weekend, about 20min ride north from the rally site. http://www.aberdare-park-road-races.co.uk. The local racers call it AberSCARE.

Fancy Dress Theme – As the Rally is being held at a rugby club, it has been decided to have a ‘SPORTS’ theme. Use your imagination, there’s more to sport than Moto GP and football.
