The shorter days and tumbling temperatures certainly signify the seasonal shift from Autumn into Winter. Looking back over the last quarter and having read the draft of this edition of the Herald I’m really struck by the amount and variety of operations, training and community support activities that personnel at RAF Honington have been busy with. Obviously, and rightly I must thank everyone who supported the numerous Remembrance Services on Station, in our ‘Freedom Towns’ Bury St Edmunds and Thetford, and across wider Suffolk and into Norfolk.
Well that’s gone by quickly! It is quite clear to me after just 6 weeks back on the Chinook Force that the pace of life hasn’t changed, RAF Odiham and the capabilities it brings are still just as much in demand as ever. It has been fantastic to see our people rising to the challenges of whatever comes our way, we are as ready as ever to react.
