“It was a successful endeavour for everyone involved and an anxious time for the families at home.”
Wing Commander Matthew D’Aubyn, officer commanding 6 Sqn, said: “We adapted our format to cater for Covid-19 restrictions and I’m delighted that we were able to formally recognise the outstanding service and commitment of 6 Squadron personnel in support of Operation Shader, as well as the fantastic achievements of other personnel.
“I also congratulate their amazing families who support us every step of the way and would normally share in these special occasions.”
