Sqn Ldr Rimon Than was the Senior Medical Officer at RAF Valley and was a fine, dedicated officer and doctor. He was passionate about mountaineering and his death is a tragedy. He was well respected and popular and will be sorely missed by all personnel at RAF Valley. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.
I had the honour of working with Sqn Ldr Rimon Than. He was an approachable and lovable character always willing to listen and offer advice when needed, always promoting the team ethos.
Through his relaxed, intelligent and calming influence he commanded the respect of his section and led through example of enjoying every opportunity the service has to offer.
