“It is an honour to return to RAF Honington in my new appointment as Commandant General RAF Regiment. Having the opportunity to witness first-hand not only the professionalism and dedication of the Corps, but also the innovative approach to Next Generation Force Protection was a real privilege. And fantastic to catch up with so many friendly faces. Thank you so much RAF Honington.”
