On Thursday 27th August The South Essex Amateur Radio Society  operated  from Bradwell Marina Waterside Rd, Bradwell-on-Sea,  Essex  for RAF Bradwell Bay  Memorial Flypast , commemorating 70 years since decommission ,Lancaster Bomber, Spitfire and Hurricane were to grace the skies over Bradwell sadly the Lancaster had engine problems so couldn’t make it ,  we was  using GB2BB many contacts were made on the day , this was a free event , and was also going to be supported by the Motor Torpedo Boat (MTB) 102. During Operation Dynamo (the evacuation from Dunkirk, May–June 1940) she crossed the channel EIGHT times and acted as Navy’s Flagship for Rear Admiral Wake-Walker when his ship was disabled. But because of a choppy North sea she couldn’t make the trip from her base at Lowestoft instead  to commemorate the ultimate sacrifice which the 121 airmen made whilst serving at RAF Bradwell Bay  another Motor  Boat from the marina  released 121 poppy’s into the River Blackwater. This was planned to take place at precisely 12 O’clock on the 27th August, with each poppy having the name of one of the airmen written on it.

Also attending were Military Vehicles, Brass band and Stalls.
