Royal Air Force signallers based at RAF Leeming honoured their departed colleagues.

They travelled to the annual service of remembrance at the National Memorial Aboretum in Staffordshire.

Family, friends and colleagues stood in silent remembrance as the names of all personnel listed on 90 Signal Unit’s Memorial were read out.

The stone, which is one of more than 200 memorials in the United Kingdom’s year-round centre of remembrance, commemorates and celebrate all those who died in the service of 90 Signal Unit.

The annual service provides the opportunity for families and colleagues of those who have died to meet and remember.

Commanding Officer, Group Captain John Wariner said: “It is my honour to lead this memorial to keep fresh in our memories those that we have lost.

“I was delighted to see so many people here – not only friends and members of the unit, but also members of the public.

“It made it a very special event in a very special place – which is right in the heart of the country.”
