Unfortunately, due to the
restrictions placed on us by COVID-19 it has been necessary to downsize the 80th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain to fit within Government and health regulations.
The Chief of Air Force is not able to attend this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.
We look forward to providing a full program in 2021. The dates are 10-12 September.
We will probably have a Flyover of an aircraft at the Cenotaph and No 28 SQN will assist with Tech communiuctions and No 29 SQN will also support the Church Service
and the Wreath Laying. The Australian Army Band Tasmania will also assist with musical enhancement.
