Battle of Britain National Commemoration 2019

An item from the Royal Canadian Air Force Association.


  

Canada’s national commemoration of the Battle of Britain will take place on Sunday 15 September 2019 at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. For those unable to participate in the Ottawa ceremony, please consult your fellow Wing or community members to learn of a ceremony near you. The national ceremony will begin at 10:20 am, at which time all guests are encouraged to be seated. “Markers” will be called at that time, followed by “Mounting of the Sentries” precisely at 10:23 am, and the “Fall In” command issued at 10:27 am. A vintage aircraft flypast will be done three times (weather permitting) at 10:45 am, 11:09 am, and 11:47 am. The parade formation is expected to be formally dismissed at 12:00 pm, at which time everyone will be invited to a reception inside the museum. Dress for RCAF Association members will be association regalia with medals. In an effort to contribute to the reduction of single-use plastics, guests are encouraged to bring a personal reusable water bottle. Cold and filtered water stations will be available on site.

The RCAF Association extends sincere gratitude to the Commander Royal Canadian Air Force – Lieutenant-General Al Meinzinger, CMM, MSM, CD, and the Battle of Britain Commemoration Team responsible for organizing this very special event – led by Major Roderick Short, CD
