March for Honour @ Sywell on Friday
1st November 2010
March for Honour's RAF team will be marching past Sywell Aerodrome on Friday 5th November, at around 12 noon. The Sywell Aviation Museum will be open on the day.
Four teams of serving and ex-serving individuals from each of Her Majesty's Armed Forces begin their epic 'March For Honour' on November 4th. Starting in four separate locations across the UK, the teams will dedicate and speed-march a mile for every British military life lost on operations in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001. Wearing military uniform, each team will march an average of around 30 miles a day and a total distance of up to 250 miles, carrying forty pounds of equipment.
The teams will unite along the route before marching into London on 11 November to deliver the Book of Remembrance to the Royal Albert Hall for The Royal British Legion's National Festival of Remembrance. Their target is to raise £1 million for The Royal British Legion who work so hard to support the welfare, interests and memories of serving and ex-serving forces, and their families.
