HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

The RAuxAF Foundation Trustees were greatly saddened to receive the news that HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh had died at Windsor Castle on 9th April. Prince Philip had had a long association with the RAuxAF beginning in 1952, when he became Honorary Air Commodore of 601 (County of London) Sqn. He took a keen and active interest in the Sqn’s activities until its disbandment in 1957, at which point, he graciously accepted the invitation to become the Sqn Association’s Patron – an appointment which he held for many years.
Throughout his time as Prince Consort, Prince Philip attended numerous RAuxAF events, often with the Queen, and he will be fondly remembered by all ranks for his encouragement, warmth and humour.
The Foundation has sent a letter of condolence to Her Majesty
