RAF Marham’s Station Commander, Group Captain Harvey Smyth OBE DFC ADC MA RAF, paid a low key visit to the Headquarters of 42F (King’s Lynn) Squadron Air Cadets.
Surprised by this impromptu visit everybody, cadets and staff alike, were then overwhelmed when the Group Captain presented the Squadron with a coveted Station Commander’s Commendation.
The citation accompanying the certificate referred to RAF Marham’s recent Friends & Families Day and the invaluable support that 42F had given marshalling the off site car parking for the estimated 6,500 visitors attending the event. It stated that they had been “vital to the success of the day”.
It continued that their task had been “a significant undertaking to successfully regulate the flow of traffic, minimising danger to the public”.
Group Captain Smyth told the Squadron that he was “very pleased to be able to present this Station Commander’s Commendation to your Squadron which is very well deserved”.
