Battle of Britain Weekend
November 2 - 4, 2018
Battle of Britain Weekend – a Core Event including Validation – 2 to 4 November 2018
The event will look at the Battle of Britain through visits to key sites in the North and West London area.
On the Saturday we will start with a single Validation session and then visit the newly opened Bentley Priory visitors centre to look at the role of Fighter Command and Hugh Dowding in the conduct of the Battle, and will also have lunch there. In the afternoon we will visit the newly re-opened 11 Gp Bunker at Uxbridge and the Sector Station at RAF Northolt, including afternoon tea in the WWII Officers’ Mess and a visit to the Sector Ops Room. In the evening there will be a Guild Quiz and dinner.
On the Sunday morning there will be two Validation sessions and we will then go to the RAF Museum at Hendon. Here we will look at the exhibition of Battle of Britain aircraft and Chain Home equipment. We will finish with lunch in the new restaurant under the wings of the Sunderland flying boat.
The plan is to base the event on a hotel in Watford which will provide the Validation rooms a part of an overall package. Further details of this will be promulgated in March.
