80th Anniversary commemoration
Plans to mark this occasion...
2022, 80th Anniversary - Update
With planning now well under way it looks like we will have two events, one at Amersham and one at Littlehampton.
Littlehampton - possibly as part of their Armed Forces Day (usually late June) and hopefully will involve a re-dedication of the plaques placed there to commemorate the links between the town and 30 AU.
Amersham - looks likely to be as part of their Heritage Weekend (Early September.
Looking to have representation from the
at both events and have secured the support of the modern 30 Commando, RM and the Ian Fleming Foundation.
Tom Boneham, our last vet, has also said he wants to fly over from Canada to be involved in some way!
It would be lovely to have as many families of '30' involved as possible and perhaps even organise an evening celebration.....????
All is Covid dependent obviously and it is early days but I hope you all feel it is something worth celebrating!
