Air Vice Marshal Mike Smart and Hereford Cathedral with their respective teams created a memorable celebration of this important anniversary. We heard accounts and poems that illustrated many aspects of the service – the bravery, especially in those early days, the dangers and tragedies, the excitement and joy too. Humour played its part with the gentlemen of the choir singing “Those magnificent men in their flying machines”.
The service was followed by a March past with the Lord Lieutenant of Herefordshire taking the salute.
