The following is an update received from SO2 Engagement & Protocol.
Corps Parish e-Notices are currently managed within the FP FHQ at RAF Honington. The future intent is to use social media and websites more widely to update the RAF Regiment family. Corps Parish e-Notices will be phased out with the information passed through social media and/or the RAF Regiment Association network and websites. Veterans in particular are encouraged to be members of the Association in order to receive Corps updates, amongst other advantages.
The 75th Anniversary Special Edition of the Centurion journal will be the last in its current format and funded through/produced by the Centurion Fund (previously the RAF Regiment Fund). This important communications and engagement tool will transition to the RAF Force Protection A9 Office (SO2 Engagement & Protocol) which is exploring new approaches including ‘coffee table style pictorial glossys’ and digital publishing.
The forthcoming Centurion Journal will be the last in hard-copy format and was paid for by subscribers in April 2017, as the annual subscriptions are paid in advance. Association members may; therefore, wish to consider cancelling their Direct Debit subscription payable on 1 April 2018 to Debit Finance fairly quickly as it will likely be initiated the week before to hit the bank transfer deadline. If there is to be no hard-copy Centurion in 2019, the 2018 subscription would be for something not ultimately provided.
The Commandant General’s Commendations will continue to be facilitated through the Force HQ. Submissions from serving members and members of the Association should be sent to: SO2 Engagement and Protocol, RAF FP Fce HQ, RAF Honington, IP31 1EE.
