Granting of the Freedom of the Borough of Newtownards to the Royal Air Force

on Saturday June 21stNewtownards

Despite atrocious weather, the parade and ceremony brought colour and spectacle to the town centre. A RAF Puma and a Tornado flew overhead in salute.
31 Group Royal Observer Corps Association played a full part in the parade and our Hon Sec, Paddy Malone paraded our Standard.
We felt proud to be members of the Royal Air Force family on such a great occasion.
Afterwards there was a fine reception in the Royal British Legion Hall Newtownards and also at Mount Stewart National property.
