ARMED FORCES DAY CLEETHORPES
The Grimsby and Cleethorpes Royal Air Force Association invited local Service organisations, including personnel from Royal Air Force Coningsby, to take part in an Armed Forces Day event in Cleethorpes on Saturday 25 June 2011, where thousands of people turned out to show their support for current and former Service personnel.
Squadron Leader Ian Heath was amongst Service and ex-Service representatives who laid wreaths at the RAF North Coates Strike Wing Memorial. Survival Equipment Flight personnel took along a display of photographs, a mannequin dressed as a pilot and survival aids, which they used to explain their role to members of the public. The Typhoon Display Team contributed with their PR trailer containing posters,
t-shirts and badges etc for sale and they raised over £400 for charity.
