Tributes have been paid to RAF Squadron Leader Rimon Than who was killed in an avalanche in the Scottish Highlands yesterday.
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.
Sqn Ldr Andy Grieve, a deputy senior medical officer at RAF Valley, described Sqn Ldr Than - who joined as a medical cadet in 2001 - as a "dear friend".
We were passionate about the same things - adventure, the hills, pre-hospital care, the RAF and medicine.
He gave and took so much from his career in the Royal Air Force and certainly lived his life to the full. No doubt he will be smiling down on us all. I will miss him terribly.
