20-30 commemorations per year for our aircrews!

RAFA Belgian Branch contribute to over 20-30 Commemorative Commitments each year, ranging from Armistice Parade with the Belgian King present, to personal tributes and commemorations to RAF aircrews who came down in small villages across Belgium during WWII.  We owe it to them to honour their memory.

Therefore a plea to all RAF and RAFA personnel serving in Belgium, please  glance at our busy events schedule and volunteer to support, you do not have to be a RAFA member.  1 event per person per year would make a huge impact
