This Armed Forces Day we celebrate all those who serve and have served.
This #BattleofBritain Day, we remember all those who served and fought for our freedom. Lest we forget. #BoB75
Our condolences to the family of Squadron Leader Tony Pickering, Battle of Britain pilot, who sadly passed away this morning.
Tony flew as a Hurricane pilot during the Second World War, one of The Few who kept our skies safe during the Battle of Britain in 1940. He attended many of the commemorations for the 75th anniversary of the Battle in September last year, some of those in support of the RAF Benevolent Fund, for which we are truly grateful.
