The Branch are delighted and hugely honoured to announce the appointment of Lord Hugh Trenchard as our Branch Honorary President.
Lord Trenchard served in the British Army from 1972 – 1980 as a Captain in the 4th Battn, the Royal Green Jackets. In 2006, he became Honorary Air Commodore of 600 (City of London) Squadron RAuxAF. Furthermore, Lord Trenchard served as a member of council and trustee for our sister charity the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund from 1991-2003 and again from 2006 – 2013.
Lord Trenchard has been a loyal supporter of the Branch for many years, most recently joining with the Branch in our Services 100th anniversary celebrations back in 2018. We warmly welcomed him at our recent Battle of Britain 'Service of Thanksgiving and Re-Dedication'.
Of course, being the grandson of the ‘Father of the Royal Air Force’ Marshall of the Royal Air Force Hugh Montague Trenchard GCB, OM, GCVO, DSO, the honour bestowed on our Royal Air Forces Association Branch is of the highest order. We look forward to many years of your Honorary Presidency.
