Air Chief Marshal Sir Andrew Pulford issued a glowing endorsement of the Duke of Cambridge's time in the RAF:
Flight Lieutenant Wales has been an integral part of the Royal Air Force’s Search and Rescue Force, as a Sea King pilot on No. 22 Squadron, based at Royal Air Force Valley for the past three years.
Throughout his tour his airmanship, often in the most demanding of conditions, has contributed directly to saving lives in the mountains of North Wales and from the ravages of the Irish Sea.
He has earned the respect of all who have worked with him as a highly professional and competent pilot.
