Airmen march through Lincoln for centenary parade

Nearly 100 personnel based at RAF Waddington and RAF Scampton have marched through Lincoln together for the first time to mark 100 years since the foundation of both bases.

The bases have been granted the Freedom of the City of Lincoln, which gives them the right to march through the city ‘with bayonets fixed, bands playing and colours flying.’

RAF Scampton was granted freedom of the city in 1993, while RAF Waddington has held the honour since 1959.

The airmen and officers were accompanied by the RAF Waddington Pipe and Voluntary Band.
