Just to come up to date, I am the one on the right, with the president of the Region outside the Sgts Mess after the Battle of Britain Parade. At that time I was Chairman of the Region. I am still involved with RAFA as Welfare Officer and Branch Delegate at National Conference. It is this coming W/End in Bournemouth.
