News in Brief 31 Sqn Father and Son Reunion
SAC Richard Gibbs is the 31 Sqn Intelligence Analyst who deployed to Afghanistan for 4½ months as part of our contribution to Op HERRICK.
Was met by his father Andrew Gibbs at RAF Brize Norton upon our return; this was not a regular home coming as his father is AC Andrew Gibbs of 4624 Sqn RauxAF and was part of the RAF Brize Norton air movements team who speedily and efficiently handled our arrival back to the UK.
Having heard of his son’s experiences during his RAF career including his time at RAF Marham and supporting 31 Sqn on exercises and operations Andrew decided to partake in military life and enlist in the RauxAF. Over the years there have been many who have followed their parents into a military career, but in this case it is the other way around!
