Purleigh — 24 June 2017
Armed Forces Day
- Hackmans Lane,
One of the biggest Armed Forces Day events in Essex held at the unique and fitting Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome near Maldon, Essex. This FREE public event is open from 11.00am until 3.00pm with the Parade and Flag-raising ceremony at 1.00pm.
It is a very special event in which we pay tribute to our Armed Forces. There will be so much to see and explore with displays of military vehicles, guided tours of the site, airside activities, a Cadet Force challenge and much more.
Stow Maries is unique. Of the 250 aerodromes built during the First World War, just ten still exist, of which Stow Maries is the only one to have remained almost untouched since the war ended in 1918.
