Should payment be made direct to the RAFBF or to another focal point?
21st Jun 2006, 23:51
Direct is fine, or via the undertaker or via the VO (me)

Please keep guys/gals at BAS Air Stn on board with events. Am sure it's happening but sometimes some can be out of the loop, this forum can help.
Caps off wherever we are.

DR, Sarah Mulvihill's funeral was yesterday afternoon. Bit of a guess, but I would say there were about 300-400 people there (Canterbury Cathedral); the church was full. As always, the RAF did her proud. Notably, the chaps from 28(AC) Sqn and RAF Benson who acted as pall bearers under the guidance of the Sqn WO - they were excellent. A fitting send off.
I'm sure someone else will talk about JC later today.

Regret I can't make your send off today JC, but I shall be there in spirit, as will many who are much further away than I am......
A glass of very decent malt will be raised this evening.

There are few words to desribe the day. To use only 2:
Many thanks to all involved during the whole day. It was made one of those special days that all will remember for years to come.
