PERSONNEL from RAF Leeming have exercised their right to march through a North Yorkshire town.
The honour was presented to RAF Leeming in 1978 as a permanent record of the links, goodwill, friendship and excellent relationships with the town of Northallerton.
Following a service in All Saints’ Church, personnel proceeded to march along Northallerton High Street, accompanied by the Band of the Royal Air Force Regiment.
The biennial event was marked by a flypast of four Hawk jets from 100 Squadron, based at RAF Leeming.
Sergeant Steve Pullan, 38, serves with 1 Squadron Tactical Communications Wing, 90 Signals Unit.
Originally from Harrogate, he was parading in his local area for the first time. He said: “I’ve not done anything like this for about four years and I was a bit rusty when we started rehearsing but it soon comes back to you.
“Taking part in a parade does make you feel proud, and it definitely makes a difference if a good number of people turn out to support us.”
