In this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours list, Wing Commander Howard Leader RAuxAF and Squadron Leader Mike Cairns RAuxAF, both from 7644 (Public Relations) Squadron RAuxAF, were awarded the prestigious Queen’s Volunteer Reservist Medal. It is expected that they will receive their awards later in the year.
To mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the Foundation’s Chairman has sent, on behalf of Trustees, a message of Loyal Greetings to Her Majesty.
Also, the Jubilee logo has been added to the Home Page, and action is in hand to to plant and dedicate a tree at the site of the RAuxAF Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum under ‘The Queen’s Green Canopy Plant a Tree Scheme’. This will probably take place in late Spring in 2023 in conjunction with the planting and dedication of a QVRM tree, again at the RAuxAF Memorial.
