    KINETON STATION OPEN DAY CELEBRATING 100yrs OF THE AMMUNITION TRADE

    Kineton Station would like to invite you all to our Station Open Day.

    Kineton Station is celebrating 100 years of Ammunition Technical Training in the British Army on Saturday 9th July 2022 at Kineton Station, Marlborough Barracks, Temple Herdewyke, Southam, CV47 2UL. Gates open at midday.

    This event is Free and all are welcome. There will be lots of food and drink stalls available, a Live Band performing from 5.00pm, Parachute Display from the RLC Silver Stars, Military aviation flypast, Fun activities for the kids, Military Display Stands and more.

    NB: There is no requirement to notify anybody of your arrival; entrance will be at the front gate off the B4100, AKA the A41 to many members.

    (One would hope there would be ordnance on display.)

    Please, somebody, go there and take photos. Do NOT miss 100th anniversary of ANYTHING. I learnt this from the 100th anniversary of Tobyhanna Army Depot http://www.bocn.co.uk/vbforum/thread...ight=Tobyhanna, probably the ONLY and the LAST time public allowed inside.

    It is around 20 miles South of Coventry by road.

    I wasn't sure where the location was without looking it up, so hopefully others find this post useful.

    Falcon, fly there (with a camera). With the present petrol prices, it can be only 1000 pounds round trip

    Tim: Do you mean no requirement to notify of arrival in advance? Is there a requirement to provide any photo ID at the gate?

    There was a similar event advertised at RAF Northolt in West London a few years back. In that case, the public had to book tickets and provide copies of ID in advance. That may also have been open to UK passport holders only.

    I didn't actually attend, but did see it advertised.

    @Falcon,

    That is the information as promulgated by those involved. As I read it, all are welcome, you just turn up (no booking etc.).
