Tank Transporter Social Network :: free to join
16 Sqn DISBANDMENT PARADE
The Disbandment Parade will take place on Friday 25th July. All members of the Tank Transporter community are welcome to attend. Exact Timings are not to be published on Facebook or any other media site. We recommend that you are here NLT 1030hrs. There is an opportunity for ex members of 16 Sqn to form a veterans squad on the parade. Dress for this would be suits or blazer with medals. Ex members of 16 Sqn still serving are also welcome to join the parade, dress is FAD with medals. We will have a run through with the Band prior to the actual parade.
A Festival Themed Party will take place on Saturday 26th July from 1400hrs to celebrate 16 Tank Transporter Squadron. There will be various entertainment throughout the afternoon and into the early hours. We have a selection of fairground rides to keep the kids (and most likely majority of the grown ups) entertained. I will post the bands and tribute acts on here closer to the event. Dress for this is casual / festival theme.
ACCOMMODATION AND TRANSPORT
Accommodation is limited. Serving personnel will take priority in the messes on a "first come first served basis" with remainder accommodated in the ORs block. We will have a number of bed spaces left but I can not confirm these at this stage. We are not eligable to use military transport for airport transit. Feel free to organise your own mini-buses / coaches but I will require registrations and names of all travelling in a private message. There is a possibility of a coach being arranged at individuals cost from Bulford area. Please contact Nigel Hooke by private message to register your interest.
A private travel insurance policy is an imperative for any traveller. A number of insurance agencies insist that the traveller be holding an EHIC to be fully covered and must be checked with the concerned agency beforehand. I suggest that if you are attending you look into the European Health Insurance Card. Type EHIC into google and all the information you need is available.
For security reasons I have to keep this event page private. Please do not copy information from this page onto other social sites. Feel free to recommend anyone you know that I have missed off the invite list.
Finally, all attending are classed as guests of 16 Sqn and are to represent accordingly. Discipline matters will be dealt with and individuals involved will be escorted and banned from camp.
