Don't want to be picky, but I count 1 x MBE, 1 x QCVS and 1 x CBE for the RAF - it still isn't as long as the Army list, but it is 50% longer than noted earlier!

Uncle G - if you want to see contractorisation delivering an improvement to Service life, take a look at Northwood. They've re-built the whole place and it's so much better than the dreary old site...

Tom

Kitbag

I agree - never heard an official announcement re Marham and F35, sounds pretty unlikely to me. To be fair to parkitup, this is a rumour site, but he should probably have made it clearer...
