Over 150 ex-Rocks mustered at the Horse Guards Parade for Whitehall Cenotaph Remembrance Sunday Service in the presence of Her Majesty the Queen. Thankfully, the morning was dry and sunny although somewhat cold in the shaded area. This year,
3 QCS SNCOs, and our two Parade Marshalls (Ron Barnbrook and Alan Parkes) kept us all in good order. In the absence of our Chairman, Jeff Steven, (due to sickness), Air Vice-Marshal Steven Abbott, CBE, lead the RAF Regiment Association contingent which for formed up in two flights. We were delighted to see Dave Jeffery, (Canada Chapter), who turned-up out of the blue. Her Royal Highness the Princess Royal took the salute at the Veterans March-past.
The Association and its members’ thank Dave Gooding (Our Remembrance ticket and RBL coordinator) and Mrs Gooding for all their organisational hard work, to make the day a success.
Thank you all for making the effort to attend this year; RAF Regiment Association contingent is fast becoming the one of the larger groups to parade at the Cenotaph and we would like to encourage a even better attendance next year.
