Hawker Memorial Remembrance Day Ceremony

Currently there are some 12 or so XXIV Sqn Association members, and one serving 24 Sqn Member, planning to participate in our annual visit to the Village of Ligny-Thilloy to pay our respects to Major Lanoe Hawker VC – the first OC 24 Sqn – and French victims of The Great War.

We will meet for a dinner in Arras during the evening of Monday 10 November.  We will then assemble by the War Memorial in the village for the Ceremony, which will commence at 1100 on Tuesday 11 November.  After the Ceremony, there will be convivial Celebrations with the Mayor and a lunch at a hotel in the town of Bapaume.

If  you would like to attend – or would like more information before making a decision, would you please contact me on the e-mail or telephone shown below.

Yours sincerely

Chas Whitaker, XXIV Sqn Association, Hawker Memorial Liaison Officer
