Requesting Service Records

The RAF Regiment.net web site is unable to help in regards to individual service records please click here

 

 

1st May 2008 marked 20 years since 3 members (J M Reid, A Kelly and J Baxter) of 1 Sqn RAF Regiment had been attacked by terrorist action in Holland, both John Millar Reid and John Baxter were killed (Andy Kelly seriously injured) when a car bomb placed underneath  their car exploded outside a night club in Holland. 

 

To remember these Gunners, 1 Sqn RAF Regiment agreed to hold a Service in memory of John and Millar. (Ian  Shinner, (16 Sqn RAF Regt), Martin Bonnes (1 Sqn RAF Regt, 22 SAS) also remembered by those who attended)  

I would like to thank "Scouse" Conner, Flt Sgt Jones (Jonah) and Warrant Officer John Gall for this event, and all members of 1 Sqn for the display (and for one poor Gunner who had to put up with all my questions) The food was greatly received, as was the evening in the Sgt's Mess.

Due to the occasion I did not take any pictures of the service itself, but took a few of the evening (well early afternoon actually) with a few drinks in the Sgt Mess.

Note : please email me with any names I have missed ...Thanks Glen Beavis (Beav)
