Battle of Britain Thanksgiving Service at Westminster Abbey

The Battle of Britain Thanksgiving Service will be held at 1100Hrs in Westminster Abbey on Sunday 18th September 2022.

The RAF Association has been asked by the Ceremonial Team, RAF Northolt to provide up to 25 standard bearers.

We have also been advised that the allocation of tickets for the Service will likely return to the traditional, pre COVID-19 pandemic, level.

Would you would like to attend the Battle of Britain Thanksgiving Service on 18 September?

Either as a standard bearer or as a member of the congregation, please e-mail

This should be no later than Monday 18th July 2022.

Please also indicate whether you would like to attend on your own or be accompanied.

If you have any questions, please contact BMOM(S) by e-mailing her at



To celebrate the 90th Anniversary year of the formation of the Edinburgh Branch of RAFA, we will hold a lunch event in the early part of next year.  Please watch for news in the next newsletter, or here on the Branch website and on our Facebook page.


Anyone for Coffee? 

I would be delighted to arrange monthly morning coffee or afternoon tea meetings with fellow members of RAFA and the wider RAF Family in our area.

First, I need to know who would like to join me, then we can choose a suitable place.  I would hope to have more than one meet-up and in different parts of our area, say one in each of the 5 counties.

Please let me, Sue Gillott, know if you are interested:
