Saturday night 25th June

Sunday 26th June 2011 was the Torbay Armed Forces Day held on the Babbacombe Downs. A veterans parade, led by the band of the Royal Marines marched from the model village, through St Marychurch and finishing on the Downs. All 3 services were represented with recruitment stands. The RAFA gazebo and the Help for Heroes charity car were also present.

Saturday 23rd June was the date for 2012. A similar event to 2011, however the weather was much better and allowed the air display to take place. There were displays by both a piston and a jet Provost, an RAF Hawk, A WW2 German bi-plane, the SWIP twister aerobatic duo and rounded off by a Spitfire from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. We also did very well for Wings Appeal from the sales of RAFA merchandise and donations.
