    On the 19th April 2020 we will be commemorating the 110th anniversary of the first occasion a body of troops was moved on operations by motor transport with a road run from Sevenoaks to Hastings. In March 1909 the AA and the War Office organised the transport of 6oo Guardsmen from London to Hastings, carried in motor cars owned by members of the AA.
    This will also be 11th consecutive year of the AA Commemorative Military Road Run is open to Military Soft skin vehicles and Motor Cycles (sorry no armoured vehicles) in use by British Forces from 1909 to the present day, as well as Veteran, Vintage and Classic cars and motor cycles up to 1945.
    Traditionally some 60 vehicles take part, leaving from at 10am from Sevenoaks Suffolk Way Car Park, to travel through Tonbridge and Pembury and down the A21, with a stop at the Chequers Inn in Lamberhurst, to Hastings.
    The vehicles will then be on display to the public at the Stade Exhibition area (on the sea front near the Old Town). First arrivals are expected from 11.30, and will be staying to approximately 15.30
    The run is being organised in aid of Combat Stress, who celebrate their 100th anniversary this year, and is supported by the AA.

    Planning is underway for Welshpool 1940s weekend 2019.  So get yourselves ready to transport yourself back to the 1940s and imagine you are in a small town were evacuated children are arriving from the major industrial towns of the North West, soldiers are going back to barracks after being on leave, aircrew are heading off to airfields of Shropshire. So in the words of the song “Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag, and smile, smile, smile.”
