ANNUAL EAST MOOR REMEMBRANCE CEREMONY - 2021
For the second year in a row, the UK COVID-19 restrictions meant that the East Moor Family Memorial events were severely curtailed. Despite group size limits and travel restrictions, the event coordinator, F/L Alan Dolding (RAF), ensured that an act of remembrance was organized. On Saturday 15 May, a small group from Sutton-on-the-Forest met at the RCAF Memorial Cairn located in the village “Pound” to lay a wreath. On behalf of the village, F/L Dolding said a few words of remembrance for the sacrifice and service of all those who served in 6 Group RCAF at RAF East Moor.
F/L Dolding has confirmed that he will coordinate the 2022 event. We hope and pray that conditions will allow for traditional participation from village residents, support organizations and both 415 and 429 Squadrons.
