The RAF Regiment Memorial Garden’s new block paving in late-2009 enabled the establishment of individual and personalized Memorial Stones in the pathway. The Memorial Stones, manufactured in honed light grey granite and available in several distinct styles, may be ordered by anyone who may wish to commemorate a Corps individual, unit or event.
RAF Regiment Association National Chairman
May I on behalf of the RAF Regt. Assoc. wish all serving members of the Corps a Happy and Safe New Year.
The “old and the bold” are proud to have served in the Corps. This I feel was proved by the number of participants representing the Regiment at the Cenotaph 2012. There were nearly 200 ex Rocks on Parade, all maintaining the proud traditions of dress and smartness associated with our Regiment. Unfortunately the BBC in their wisdom chose to ignore us!!
To those serving now, we are proud of the way in which you conduct yourselves both on operations and in your civic duties. It is our fervent wish that you all remain safe during 2013
I attended a Branch Lunch during November when the person next to me started to reminisce on his service, I asked him when he had joined the Regiment, smiling, he took out his wallet and showed me a GG badge saying “this is the first badge I was given on my enlistment”. That man is as proud now as when the original Ground Gunner’s became the RAF Regiment.
So in closing may I wish all Rocks both serving and retired a very safe 2013.
Jeff Stevenson Chair RAF Regt. Assoc.
