Visit of Gp Capt Mike Shields – 1993/1995

I apologise about having few details regarding this Visit. It took place whilst Sqn Ldr Kevin Hahn was the CO and therefore occurred in the period Sep 93 to Sep 95. I recognise Gp Capt Mike Shields and the venue – the Viking Club. I have the names of 2 of the recipients of the awards – Sgts Day and Dodds but regrettably I don’t know which is which and I’m afraid the name of the Corporal is also unknown.

From the certificate being awarded to one of the Sgts I can just make out the words “British Forces Cyprus” and from the “colour” of the medal ribbons in the black and white photos it appears that the other Sgt and the Corporal are being awarded Long Service and Good Conduct Medals. If anyone can offer more information I will update this section at a later date.

The first 3 photos show the recipient of the British Forces Cyprus Commendation? (Left click on photos to enlarge).

The next 2 photos show the award of LS&GCMs:

The last 2 are group photos:
