RAF Boulmer personnel were presented with honours and awards for their work and achievement at a special ceremony.

Station Commander, Group Captain Paul Atkinson, handed over the awards in front of families of the recipients in the Officers’ Mess.

He said: “It is a pleasure to be able to recognise personnel for their commitment in a role over many years, or excellence in an operational role at home or on operations overseas, or for excellence in a sport.

“There are many examples here today and we must remember that behind every recipient there is a team in support – be it at work or at home. So I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to that team.”
