RAF Marham takes centre stage at Royal Norfolk Show
The wind and rain did not dampen the spirits of the personnel from RAF Marham from putting on a fantastic show at the County’s largest agricultural event. RAF Marham attends the event every year, to represent the RAF, display the different trades and take part in the sunset parade. This year however, the organisers of the Royal Norfolk Show invited RAF Marham to celebrate their centenary year by bringing more personnel and displays to the show.
The station was represented in the military zone, the discovery zone and the heritage zone with static displays and a climbing wall. The caterers performed a ‘Ready, Steady, Cook’ style competition with local celebrity chefs, which the Station Commander judged very enthusiastically! The RAF Falcons displayed in the Grand Arena and Station Ceremonial Flight carried out the sunset ceremony along with other military, both UK and USAF, civilian emergency services, veterans and cadets from across the County of Norfolk. The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were in attendance and delighted the crowds as they visited the different displays.
Woodfordes Brewery even launched a special ‘Norfolk Tornado’ beer to honour RAF Marham’s Centenary which was launched at the Royal Norfolk Show.
The RAF Marham photographers were out in force and we hope the pictures give you a taste of what the show was all about. A great couple of days were had by all and RAF Marham was proudly showcased at the largest event in the county.
