2017 COMMEMORATIVE COMMITMENTS & EVENTS

Beneath is the RAFA Belgian Branch standing list of commemorative ceremonies.  In addition to this list there are often short notice 'pop up' events in year from the Embassy that are sent through the UK JSU.

Red events are in need of a volunteer....  Go ahead, make your day ....

Volunteer by clicking the button on the event you are interested in, this will pre-prepare an email for you with a reference code, to send to RAFA for your confirmation or to enquire further.   

Grey events dates have yet to be confirmed by the relevant organisers.   

Green events are allocated, but by all means if you have personal interest please drop RAFA a line as we may be able to offer you a lift or at the very least put you in touch with who else is representing the RAF/RAFA.
