Commencing at 14.00hrs.
Members and Guests are requested to meet at the Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club at 13.30hrs.
This event will be the final Service of Remembrance commemorating the occasion of Operation Fuller and the attempt to stop, or impede, the German Navy's attempt to sail the warships, Scharnhorst, Gneisenau and Prinz Eugen and their escorts to their home ports in Germany.
Members will recall that we paraded at both the Ramsgate and Dover monuments on the actual 75th anniversary date of 12 February. However, the occasion was fairly low key as other events were also taking place to commemorate the event and it had been planned that the main event to commemorate the 75th Anniversary would be 30th September 2017 in order to maximise on those who would be able to take part in the occasion. Some further details of the event will be given to members at the AGM on August 22nd. However, due to security reasons, many details can not be published so far in advance of the event.
Events held so far this year to commemorate the 'Channel Dash@ have included a Service of Remembrance held at the Fleet Air Arm Church at Yeovilton which included a flypast of Wildcat helicopters of 825 NAS followed by dinner at the Officers Mess at RNAS Yeovil, both hosted by 825 NAS.
On the morning of12th February members and guests assembled at the Ramsgate Monument for a Commemorative Service followed in the afternoon by another Commemorative Service at the Dover Monument.
