AM attends RAF centenary ceremony

Monmouth AM Nick Ramsay was delighted to attend a special ceremony to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the RAF.

Hosted by Monmouthshire County Council on Monday, the event was attended by civic dignitaries, representatives from the RAF and a group of schoolchildren from Usk Primary School. The Flag was raised by the Lord Lieutenant Robert Aitkin and the Chair of the Council, Cllr Peter Clarke.

Speaking after the ceremony, Mr Ramsay said: “Every morning at RAF bases across the UK, the ensign is raised. It’s fitting that this ceremony took place in Monmouthshire today too.

“The RAF do a fantastic job defending our freedoms and keeping Britain safe.

“They also play a valuable part in peacekeeping across the world. Today was our chance to say thank you to the servicemen who do so much to protect us.”
