It will not be long now before I have to make our submission to the Royal British Legion for our participation in this year’s Memorial Service and march past in Whitehall, London on 12th November 2023. There are still some places left in our Music Services contingent, but we are limited to 25 only, and these will be allocated on a first come first served basis. The Royal British Legion will not be allocating any extra places after our initial application, so to be sure of a place you need to apply sooner rather than later.

The RAF Music Services is held in the highest esteem all over the world and we should be all so proud of this. Please consider (bearing in mind each of your personal circumstances) being part of this enjoyable and worthwhile event this year.  It’s an opportunity to feel proud and enjoy meeting up with like-minded ex-service members, not only from RAF Music services, but also from all other services.

I can say from personal experience, and those of our colleagues who have attended in the past, that the atmosphere and comradeship is unbelievable and it is a totally memorable day.

If you decide you wish to take part, the quickest and easiest way to apply is to complete the online application form. Alternatively you can phone or email me – you can find my phone number and email address on the inside back cover of The Blue and The Gold. Whichever you choose you must do it before 18th August 2023.
