Jane Reilly  |  Published: Jul 31st 2018

A special presentation took place at the Graduation Parade rehearsal of Pearson Intake at Recruit Training Squadron when Station Commander, Group Captain James Brayshaw, presented Sgt Danson Trimmingham, from Drill and Ceremonial, with his own personalised pace stick and a framed image of him standing outside Buckingham Palace as Her Majesty The Queen addressed the Royal Air Force at the Parade to commemorate RAF100.

The Station Commander said: “The gift is well earned due to the volume of work Sgt Trimmingham undertook on the run up to RAF100.”

Sgt Trimmingham and the Station's drill instructors put in countless hours of work in the lead up to RAF100 and tirelessly worked with the 1000 personnel over the course of 10 days in the lead up to the Parade on 10 July.

Sgt Trimmingham said: “I am totally surprised by this. I would like to mention and thank the staff at RTS who helped me in the run up to the London parade. It was a team effort and I couldn’t have done it on my own. Thank you to you all.”
