Branch Event for
2018 Armed Forces Day
2018 saw the biggest and most well attended Armed Forces Day in Letchworth. Warm weather and a full programme of events saw the towns people celebrating their local armed forces.
3 significant 100 year anniversaries helped to make the day extra poignant. The RAFs 100 years since formation, 100 years since women were able to join the armed services and 100 years since the WWI armistice on the Western Front.
Former WRAF aircraft engineer Audrey Poynter was awarded her long over due WWII War Medal on the day, she worked on Wellingtons in Transport Command.
The Branch turned out in style and brought the Association out in the community once again, helping recruiting and to kick off our Wings Appeal.
