Stations and Units I have served on or been to


Like everyone else who has been in the RAF I have moved around, served on and visited many RAF locations. Here’s a list of most the Stations and Units I have been to. I have forgotten most of those I went to (some 4/5 per year) doing AOC Staff Inspections when I was at the two Command HQs. I can remember a few:


RAF Swanton Morley

RAF Sealand

RAF Chessington

RAF Hospital Ely


I also went to about six stations when I was attending court martial or sitting as the Junior Member.


I also visited dozens of ATC Squadrons during my time at RAF CIO Bedford.
