Update from the band

This week the band said a fond farewell to Staff Sergeant Dave Thompson who is retiring after 21 years of service.

Before enlisting into the band, Dave served for 24 years in the Royal Air Force Music Services and has been invaluable to the saxophone section as well as the smooth running of the band.

The Commanding Officer Lieutenant Colonel Adam Wolfe MBE and the Regimental Sergeant Major, both congratulated Dave on his service.

As one veteran retires another young recruit embarks on a career in military music. Nathaniel has been on work experience with us all week and has his audition for the Royal Corps of Army Music next week.

The Commanding Officer took time to pass on some words of advice during his visit! We complete our first week’s ADX tomorrow and have spent the week training hard to re-hone our skills for the summer ahead.
