POBC VISIT TO TANGMERE

Ten young officers, undergoing their RAF professional training on the Personnel Officers Basic Course (POBC), visited the Museum over the weekend of the 19/20th February to undertake ‘Community Support’ work as a part of their course. Tangmere was selected because of its history as a former fighter station which played a key role in the defence of the United Kingdom during the Second World War and in particular, during the Battle of Britain. After listening to a talk on the history of RAF Tangmere the young officers set to with a will to tackle a variety of tasks. Including:

  • Pressure washing the external aircraft.
  • Polishing the internal aircraft.
  • Manning the simulators.
  • Assisting in the Education Centre.
  • General tidy up of the Museum grounds.

The reaction of visitors to the officers in combat fatigues was one of delight at meeting them, although many presumed they must be soldiers because of their dress. To reinforce their Royal Air Force pedigree, two of the WRAF Officers wore their No 1 uniforms on the Sunday.
