Monday 17th December was a very difficult day for staff members Sgt F Bull and her husband CI Bull on the sad occasion of the funeral of Sgt Bull’s father.
Her father served for many years in the RAF and in more recent years had been involved with the local Royal British Legion. He is survived by his wife, children & grandchildren. Sgt Bull’s son, Alan, was a Cadet at 5F until April 2012 when he left to join the Grenadier Guards.
On request from the family and to honour the RAF & ACO links, OC 5F (Flt Lt C.Haynes RAF VR(T)) and Cadets from 5F provided a small guard of honour and CI.Upton played ‘Last Post’ immediately following the interment.
