Here’s where you can find out all about events planned by the Hill 112 Memorial Foundation and how you can be part of the story.
Our fantastic celebration of the forties, held for the first time in 2021 and again last year, is returning this year on 19 and 20 August, again at Betteshanger Park and promising to be bigger and better than before.
We’ve lined up a superb range of activities, events, attractions, stalls, trade stands music and dance. A licensed bar, street food and re-enactment groups will make this a fantastic weekend of forties fun, food and fizz. We are still keen to hear from traders and re-enactors – just email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 07540 374683 to find out more.
Military Vehicle Convoy 2024
Plans are being put in place for two military vehicle convoys next summer that will follow in the footsteps of the 112th (Wessex) Field Regiment, 477 Battery, F Troop.
The aim of the fund-raiser will be to retrace Albert Figg’s journey from Ver-sur-Mer, at the eastern end of Normandy’s historic Gold Beach, to Hill 112.
There will be two opportunities to join the convoy, on Wednesday 5 June and on Sunday 7 July.
The vehicles will journey through some of the places where Albert’s troop dug in with its 25-pounder field gun on the way to Carpiquet Airfield, from where it fired over Hill 112 in support of the infantry.
To be kept informed of the plans as they develop, please email email@example.com
