Interesting posts about who's been on continuous ops the longest.

STEP FORWARD Tactical Supply Wing (TSW) based at Beacon Barracks Stafford (formerly RAF Stafford).

They kicked off ops in (I think) about 1969/70 Northern Ireland and have been deployed somewhere - often multiple somewheres - ever since.

Of interest, although they are an operational unit, they have been denied a squadron standard on several occasions and when the non operational (former OCU) sqns have been allowed theirs. Double standards or what!!
