RAF Halton Remembers
For this year’s Remembrance Sunday, RAF Halton represented the Royal Air Force at eight towns and villages across three counties. Commemorating those that have lost their lives through war and conflict, RAF personnel from across the Station paraded alongside local dignitaries, other Services, Veterans, and cadet organisations at services of remembrance and wreath laying ceremonies.

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, RAF Halton personnel, joined by children of Halton Combined School, observed a 2 minute silence for Armistice Day at the Station Muster.

The Halton Apprentices Association (HAA) also held a Service of Remembrance at St. George’s Church earlier in November. This service was delivered by the Venerable (Air Vice Marshal) Dr Giles Legood MBE KHC, RAF Chaplain in Chief and Reverend (Wing Commander) Mitchell, RAF Halton Senior Chaplain.

Refurbished Bus Shelter
In early November, personnel from RAF Halton attended the opening of a newly restored bus stop in Halton Village. Cutting the ribbon was Councillor Jane MacKinnon from Halton Parish Council alongside Sergeant Topping who was fundamental in the delivery of the new Bus Stop.
