The event will start at Southwick House on 25th June 2022 near Fareham in Hampshire and run to Milestones Museum in Basingstoke, a distance of about 37 miles. The object of the event is to raise funds for the Royal British Legion Riders’ Branch.
In order to avoid too much difficulty with traffic regulations the convoy may have to be restricted to 60 vehicles, which should be of Second World War vintage and of all allied nations.
Anyone interested in taking part should contact Vice President Michael Burne on [email protected] . Entry forms with full details will be sent nearer the time.
