Air Force tribute for anniversary church service

31 March 2010

The Royal New Zealand Air Force will commemorate its 74th anniversary with a church service at the Wellington Cathedral of St Paul this Sunday 3 April at 2.00pm, and members of the public are invited to attend.

The service is held to remember those who have served in the RNZAF in peace and war, and particularly those who have lost their lives in service to their country. New Zealanders who fought and died in other Air Forces are also remembered, with thanks given for the dedication of the men and women of today’s Air Force.

During the service the Queen’s Colour of the RNZAF, the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP) Commemorative Pennant and the standards of Air Force’s squadrons will be paraded.

Music for the service will be provided by the Central Band of the RNZAF.
