Andover Armed Forces Day 2024 to Showcase Historic Battle of Britain Memorial Flight

On the 29th of June 2024, Andover will host a spectacular display commemorating the courage and sacrifice of our armed forces. Andover Armed Forces Day 2024 promises to be an event of significance, highlighted by the participation of the iconic Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

The centrepiece of this year’s celebration will be a breathtaking flyby featuring TWO legendary Spitfires, paying homage to the bravery of those who served in the Royal Air Force during World War II. These meticulously restored aircraft, symbols of British resilience and ingenuity, will soar over Andover, evoking memories of a pivotal chapter in our nation’s history.

“The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight holds a special place in the hearts of all who appreciate the indomitable spirit of our armed forces,” said Richard Rowles, Chair of the Armed Forces Day Committee. He continued “We are honoured to have them join us for Andover Armed Forces Day 2024, as we come together to honour the valour and dedication of our service members, past and present.”

The inclusion of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight underscores the importance of remembering and honouring the sacrifices made by generations of service personnel. It serves as a poignant reminder of the debt of gratitude owed to those who have defended our freedoms and upheld the values we hold dear.

Andover Armed Forces Day 2024 will feature a range of activities and displays, providing an opportunity for the community to come together in support of our armed forces. From exhibitions to live performances, there will be something for everyone to enjoy while paying tribute to our brave servicemen and women.

Join us on the 29th of June 2024 as we salute the past, present, and future of our armed forces, and celebrate the enduring spirit of Andover.
