This is a magnificent year for commemorating important anniversaries, and what could be more important to celebrate than one hundred years of the RAF?

On home turf I was marshalling the commemorative parade around our fine city of Gloucester, but of course in my line of work you have to be prepared to promote such occasions here, there and everywhere!

It was officially one hundred years since the RAF was formed on 1st April 2018. This has been widely celebrated, of course, across the entire UK, with commemorative events taking place across the nation, including cities such as London, Cardiff and Manchester.

I was honoured to celebrate the centenary of the oldest air force in the world, and the nation looks forward to what the next one hundred years will bring for this incredible organisation.
