98th Locking News

98th Locking News (3)


Yet another year has gone since the anniversary of the day we all signed on the dotted line and our lives changed direction.

I wanted to posthumously record our thanks to Mick Rafferty who sadly passed away in September 2015 and who did so much to keep the web site up and running. I would also like to add our thanks to Mick’s son, Martin who supported his dad with much of the development and maintenance of the 98th web site.

As each anniversary goes by I think how lucky I was to have had the opportunity to learn a trade, develop life skills and see some of the world with the RAF, before heading into the world of electronics and business.

I wish to pass on my Regards to all the ex-members of the 98th Entry of Aircraft Apprentices at Royal Air Force Locking and wish them well for the future.

Kindest Regards

Dave Tripp
