In an insightful speech Air Commodore Huggett highlighted the importance of the support provided to military colleagues both in terms of continuity and the availability of skillsets not normally found in the military.

Following an excellent ceremony the opportunity was taken to transition to a BBQ event which was universally enjoyed.
