15 Squadron RAF Regiment get on their bikes, thanks to the RAF Association
15 Squadron RAF Regiment will deploy on Operation Herrick, Afghanistan on the “last” deployment which begins in April. The drawdown of Camp Bastion means that transport and various other logistics support will diminish. As the camp is a large area, covering it on foot isn’t always possible.
That’s why WO Shaun Griffin (Stowmarket Branch RAF Association Liaison Officer) asked the RAF Association for 15 mountain bikes to help the squadron get around. He said: “We were wondering how we were going to get around once we were out in Afghan, then someone suggested asking the RAF Association. We were really pleased that they agreed to sponsor the bikes we asked for, they will be invaluable to us.”
