It has become the the custom over the years that the RAF BD Association has been active that we lay a wreath and poppy crosses at the RAFBD Memorial at Eden Camp near Malton in Yorkshire. We do this on the 11th of November at 11am. With the loss of Fred Knox who would normally have conducted the Remembrance Service, the short Service will be conducted by the Chairman of the Association Mr Paul Steele. Nick Hill, the Eden Camp Manager will speak at the Service about the RAFBD Memorial and the input that Fred Knox had in placing it at Eden Camp. The date this year is Saturday 11 November 2023. Eden Camp is now open to the general public There will be some pictures published on this page of the Remembrance Service after 11th November. It is hoped that a few more people could attend along with the children from local schools.
Thank you to our RAF Photographers Cpl Galloway and SAC Waterson for the above images.

A FINAL FAREWELL was said at RAF Wittering in Cambridgeshire today as former members of No 5131 Bomb Disposal Squadron held a formal disbandment parade.
Today’s ceremony was also the formal dedication of a new memorial to the Squadron, which has been installed inside the Station’s Chater Road Gate. The installation features, among other items, an iconic armoured personnel carrier used by the Squadron in previous years.
No 5131 Bomb Disposal Squadron was actually disbanded during the lockdown at the height of the Coronavirus pandemic in 2020, as the RAF’s explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) capability transferred to the Army. Restrictions at the time, however, made a full military parade impossible, and so the decision was made to wait for a more appropriate opportunity.
