The D Day Darlings.
Last Sunday was the eleventh annual NSRAF parade at RAF Cosford and we had about 150 of us on parade.
The parade march was led by the West Midlands Fire Service Band resplendant in their bright red uniforms and silver helmets;the reviewing officer was Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Dalton accompanied by Group Captain Adam Samson station commander of RAF Cosford;they made a short inspection of the parade and then short speeches were made by the ACM including a message from H.M. The Queen expressing how valuable our services had been as national servicemen The Last Post and Reveille was played by a member of the W.M Fire Service Brigade and the Kohoma Epitaph was read out.
Whilst this was going on and it probably was the hottest day we've had so far this year and standing so long in the hot sun a few of the lads succumbed and passed out.Luckily the medics were in presence so they were quickly attended to.
The D Day Darlings were in attendance and gave us a rendering of all the old favorite war time songs during the afternoon and we also had a contingent of cadets from four local ATC Squadrons were on parade with us.
A Dakota from the B of B memorial flight carried out a flying display at the close so all in all it was a succesful parade, cheers, jhy.
