In this centenary year the RAF have planned a series of events to take place from 1 April  2018

Today a specially designed Baton will leave from the Royal Courts of Justice in London and will end 100 days later, on the 10th July, on Horseguards Parade.

The Baton will be carried around the UK and abroad by RAF personnel, cadets, veterans and sporting associations that make up the RAF
