    help required for remembrance service

    I've recently been Co-opted onto the local parish council and the village used to be home to an RAF airfield (Kirmington), this year we are holding the remembrance service on the 10th of November and we are struggling to find an RAF officer to attend to lay a wreath and represent the RAF.

    In previous years we have had Air officers attend due to the ties to 166 sqn and I've been asked if there was anyone I knew that would be interested in attending, obviously being an ex SAC fairy my phonebook is a little light on senior officers.

    If there is anyone that is able to help please PM me. Thanks

    what about the media dude at RAF Coningsby - thats reasonably close by and I'm sure they could nominate a jnr officer to represent the RAF during Remembrance Day.

    How about the local RAFLO or maybe ATC Sqn.

    Drop the SWO at Scampton a line, they provide pers all around that area for Remembrance.
    They used to say if an infinite number of chimps typed we would get the works of Shakespeare, reading E-Goat has proved this is NOT the case...

  5. Not being funny but why does it have to be an officer?

    A very valid question, however as the Army and Navy are able to have officers to attend it would look a little poor if the RAF couldn't spare an officer for a few hours, especially given that RAF Kirmington lost over 900 personnel during WWII.

    Thanks for all of the advice everyone, I was based at Scampton for a few years and I have been in contact with their local liaison officer to see if they can spare anyone.
