Mark Hamilton spent one evening at Royton Air Training Corps and was immediately hooked. That was back in 1977 and he has just said a sad farewell to friends and colleagues at a special party staged to mark the conclusion of a remarkable association.

Ex-cadets, many now serving in the RAF, made a special journey to pay tribute to the man who eventually became their Squadron Commander. During his time, Royton picked up a string of awards. Ive enjoyed my time immensely, he told guests.
