Gary  works on our PRO assembly line as a Fitter / Maintenance Support. Here is his story....

''I joined the Raf in 1983 as I was passionate about aircraft and wanted a career that would give me a trade which allowed me to work with my hands. I trained as an engineer and worked on various aircraft. During my time in the service I was deployed to Northern Ireland and Gulf War 1. I am very proud to have served my country and I am now a member of the Royal Air Force Association which involves me attending various charity events on behalf of the RAF. I am also a RAF volunteer as a telephone friendship caller to ex RAF personnel which I enjoy immensely. Armed Forces Day means a lot to me as I feel it gives the nation a chance to show just what the men and women of all three HM Armed Forces mean to the people of the UK''.
