Do you remember anyone or were you there? Let me know via www.chrisporsz.com
That’s what David Foley did. He was a Warrant Officer in my recent parade picture and joined us for the reunion in August.
He told me: “VIPs were at the time of the parade: AOCnC of RAF Strike Command, who went onto become Chief of the Defence Staff: Marshal of the Royal Air Force. Lord Craig of Radley.
“Lady Craig was also a guest at the Freedom Ceremony as per the photo.
“Also pictured were First Gunner Derek Summers then it’s Ken Jones and Paddy Willoughby.”
