The duty of receiving our fallen military personnel killed on Operations, is conducted at Royal Air Force Brize Norton.
The deceased are flown back to the Station on a C-17 Globemaster, of Number 99 Squadron, where members of their families are waiting at the purpose built Repatriation Centre. Senior Military representatives, including the Station Commander, or his nominated representative, will also be in attendance.
After a short ceremony, the cortège will leave RAF Brize Norton via Britannia Gate to the Memorial Garden at Norton Way. Details of the Memorial Garden and route can be found on the Oxfordshire County Council website.
