Royal Air Force Fylingdales Staff Commemorate Armistice Day Across The Area


Military personnel and families joined in the local commemoration ceremonies on the 100th year that marked the end of hostilities of the First World War.

RAF Fylingdales staff attended events at Scarborough, Whitby, Pickering and Thornton Dale. Each of the events was well attended with officers from the Space Surveillance Station laying wreaths and taking part in the 2 minutes silence to mark the end of the First World War and remember the fallen from all wars.

Wing Commander Alun Walton said:

‘This is an important day for RAF Fylingdales as our people pay tribute to the men and women who sacrificed so much over a 100 years ago.’
