Our extended ceremony today took place in glorious sunshine and we were extremely lucky to be joined by some excellent new cadets to the Army Training Centre, Pirbright as they toured the military cemetery with a CWGC guide.
At that point in the ceremony where we usually recall someone personal, today we remembered Flying Officer Robert Edward Mair, Bomber Command, son of WB and Amy Mair, who was lost over Germany on the night of 23rd November 1943, aged just 22. So young, so long ago, but not forgotten.
An excellent rendition of the Last Post and Reveille was sounded by Mrs Ruth Moore which resonated round the RAF Memorial and military cemetery.
Afterwards, we went round to The Trench Experience for some much needed refreshments.
