RAF Wattisham 1970s smallFor anyone not enrolled in the KHS CCF (RAF) Section in the 1970's, this heading will appear somewhat odd. For those who were cadets at the time, the memories (and possibly the sick bags) will now be flooding back.

RAF Little Rissington was only 10 miles from school. It was until 1977, the RAF's Central Flying School and home to the Red Arrows. As RAF cadet's, we were very fortunate to fly 2-seater, single-engine trainer planes called Chipmunks at least once a term on CCF 'Field Days'.

 

Marching smaOn Tuesday the 12th March Kingham Hill School CCF held their biennial inspection in front of a number of members of the school’s senior management team and governors, local dignitaries, representatives from the armed forces and parents.  Our reviewing officer was former KHS pupil Air Vice Marshal Malcolm Brecht, CBE, (Plymouth & Clyde 1975-1983) who has been appointed recently as Chief of Staff (Capability).
