The Allied Special Forces Memorial Grove 25th April 2015

Post date: Apr 11, 2015 3:32:36 PM

On the 25th April we will be supporting a dedication ceremony for a memorial grove that has been created by The Allied Special Forces Association at the National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas, Staffordshire.

HMS has been asked to deploy its WW2 Mark 8 Canoe on the day.

The principle focus of the event will be to remember Operation Frankton, popularly known as the Cockleshell Heroes raid, yet the organisers asked us to show our boat as the Association is representative of a broad range of WW2 and post-war operations and units - including the SBS and SAS.

Please do come along if you can, it being a public event.
