Remembrance Sunday Cenotaph March PastLondon
A contingent from the FAAOA will march past the Cenotaph and all Fleet Air Arm associations will march together. We will still be in our separate associations but each will march in succession as one Fleet Air Arm ‘family’.
For those wishing to take part, please contact the Office for tickets and further information. Details below.
There is more to taking part than appears on television. The day can be very tiring and involves standing or marching for nearly three hours, often in the cold and rain, so please think carefully before you apply. If you do not feel able to march, there is an alternative simpler and shorter act of remembrance involving laying a wreath at the Fleet Air Arm memorial on the embankment, located between the Ministry of Defence Main Building and the river. This is not ticketed and you do not have to give notice to attend; simply turn up on the day at the memorial by 10.45. Attendees observe the two minutes silence and then a wreath is laid. You may choose whether to return for the assembly of all the FAA associations which happens at about 12.45 (on completion of the main Cenotaph parade).
