AIRMEN at RAF Odiham remembered fallen personnel on Remembrance Day.

A total of 30 station personnel took part in a parade in High Street, Odiham, on Sunday, and laid a wreath at the village’s war memorial.

They then attended a church service at All Saints’ Church.

On Friday, November 9, all personnel not on essential duty gathered at the Station Memorial Site to remember the 99 RAF Odiham personnel who have lost their lives in service over the past 60 years.

The 99 names were read out by station personnel before the base observed a two-minute silence.

It also supported Remembrance Day events in Alton, Basingstoke, Bramley, Burghfield, Godalming, Hartley Wintney, Old Basing and Portsmouth.
