RAF100 Baton Relay Team To Visit Tangmere Museum

On Monday 16 April the 100th anniversary of the formation of the RAF will be celebrated at the Tangmere Military Aviation Museum by the Museum hosting the ‘RAF100 Baton Relay’ team.

This team set off from the Royal Courts of Justice in London on founder’s day, 1 April when the Chief of the Air Staff handed over the Baton to the team. The relay will visit one hundred RAF related sites including nine overseas locations in one hundred days and will involve over twenty RAF sports organisations who will showcase their sport and opportunities available in an RAF career. The relay will close on 10 July at Horseguards Parade, London.

The Museum is privileged to have been selected as one of the locations and plans to use the Baton visit to highlight the various jobs our all-volunteer workforce undertake. Photographs will be taken of our staff holding the Baton and these images will then be compiled into albums, one of which will be presented to the RAF100 Baton Relay team in due course.

RAF 100 aims to communicate, celebrate and to inspire young women and members of minority ethnic communities to think about a possible career in the RAF. To this end the Museum is introducing on the day a ‘Women at War’ trail which takes visitors around the Museum to locations where women are featured e.g. Women in the RAF and Air Transport Auxiliary, SOE agents and as plotters and radar operators during the Battle of Britain.
