This May, the RAF Music Services will hold a celebration of all women who served in its ranks.

On Saturday May 21, the Royal Air Force Music Services hosts current serving musicians, those who joined as full and equal members of RAF Music from 1991, and those who served in the WRAF Central Band between 1947-1972 for a big reunion.

The reunion is an opportunity to meet again, renew friendships and meet other service women.

However, the RAF Music hasn’t been able to get the word out to all former musicians.

Flight Sergeant Neil Chapman said: “We are having a reunion later this year for all women who have served as musicians in the RAF.“Unfortunately, we have lost touch with many of them, however, as the band was based at RAF Uxbridge it is likely that many have settled in the Bucks area." 

On the year of Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee, the services marks 30 years since women became full members of RAF Music and 50 years since the WRAF Central Band disbanded.
