The Headley Court Charity was established in 1940 and in 1947 decided to acquire the estate at Headley Court in Surrey for the purpose of providing a facility for the medical rehabilitation of pilots and aircrew of the Royal Air Force. The facility opened in 1949 and the objects of the charity have since expanded to provide medical rehabilitation for all members of the armed forces.
In 2018, the clinical facility will move to a new purpose built facility at Stanford Hall in the East Midlands and the MOD will vacate Headley Court.
In recognition of the significant role that Headley Court has played in the lives of so many servicemen and women over almost 70 years, the Royal British Legion has kindly agreed that a Headley Court Charity contingent of 70 veterans drawn from former patients and staff should form part of the Remembrance Parade for 2017.
This is a once only occasion.
Former patients and members of staff who are veterans are invited to register their interest at the contact address below.
Please send a self- addressed stamped envelope which will be used to forward your ticket. Also please indicate whether you are a former a patient or former member of staff, specifying the year that you were at Headley Court and in the case of former staff members, the appointment held.
Security is tight and entrance to St James will only be permitted on surrender of an appropriate ticket. You are advised to register early. Tickets for carers can be provided.
