Remembrance Ride 2019

November 9, 2019

On Sunday 3rd November 2019 Laurie Tombs organised our annual ride to visit the site of four WW2 Pilots who lost their lives in Kent during the Battle of Britain. The weather was cold but fine and sunny

Twelve members of the WKRC attended our usual meeting point and then went first to Hesketh Park Dartford a memorial to Sgt T.Oldfield before moving on Court Lodge Farm Darenth for Flying Officer N.Barry.Then to Spare Penny lane Farningham for Flt Lt J. Patterson and finally to Warren Road Chelsfield for Sgt J.Ellis. Details of all these memorials and the stories behind them can be found at the shoreham-aircraft-museum.co.uk website.

We laid a small cross & wreath at each location and alsovisited the café at Shoreham Aircraft Museum before returning home or in some cases carrying on with a longer ride.

For once the group were silent as we rode thinking of the very young pilots who sacrificed all.
