On behalf of the Officers and Committee of Royal British Legion Harwell Branch:

I am delighted to write inviting the Riders to participate in the 78th Anniversary Commemoration DDay Parade at the Harwell Memorial Stone on Saturday 4th June 2022.

Following two years’ absence from the full parade format due to the pandemic we are pleased to confirm we return to our familiar full parade format for 2022 and very much hope to see as many of your riders return to the Parade.


Timings are as follows

  • 1700 – Veterans Groups and Cadet Forces assemble at Frome Road Car Park
  • 1720 – Cadet Forces Parade Marshall marches Guard of Honour into position
  • 1725 – Parade Marshall Marches RBL and Associated Groups Banners into position

With the May bank holiday moving to June, we now see this event positioned in the middle of what promises to be an exciting extended weekend of Jubilee celebrations and hope that you will be able to join us.

Attendees are all invited to lay a wreath at the memorial and as in previous years.
