At one time there was an RAF outfit called the Central Participation Committee who I believe were responsible for allocating display commitments for all RAF personnel and assets. I believe there is something similar today but I'm not sure what its called the Public Relations department or something?

The new team leader will soon have them back on track. I've known 'Wobbly' for a number of years now, and he's definitely the bloke for the job. He has an amazing eye for detail.

Is anyone really at all surprised by this news?

All that has changed in the past 40 years or so is that those on the receiving end of what has been endemic misogynistic behaviour for as long as I can remember (and I'm now 70) have at last had the courage and means to speak out about what was always referred to as "high spirits" in my day. My dear wife was subjected to this sort of behaviour in the mess many times over the years, despite, or perhaps because, she was seen as fair game, just because her choice of career was to be a medic. She felt there was no way to complain about, or criticise, the constant verbal and physical assaults by a few of the "flying gods", as to do so would be seen as being career limiting. I retired several decades ago, and frankly I do not miss the often sexist banter with my former colleagues one bit. It's time for these dinosaurs to face their extinction and accept that society has moved on and become fairer since the days before women were given parity with men.
