Editors Foreword Autumn 2011
Well folks, this will be my last Wittering View, Cott Witt View, Birds Eye View or whatever we call ourselves these days, as I am posted to Air Cmd as of 3 Oct 11. This is certainly one secondary duty I have enjoyed doing as it gives me a chance to get to know people and find out what’s happening on unit. Some might say that’s just because I am nosey. As OC PSF I think it comes with the job! I couldn’t have produced this magazine without the help of the editorial team, mainly Emma Stacey, my deputy, who has spent hours editing all the articles and standing over me to ensure I meet my deadlines. Of course I can’t forget the photo section and CIS Flt who get the last minute calls chasing for pictures or discs. Thank you for your patience.
I have absolutely loved every minute of my time here at Wittering. It is such a friendly base, and the ‘can do’ attitude of all personnel here means that I have never been left struggling for articles or help. I can only ask that my successor, Sqn Ldr Liz Corry, is looked after in the same manner as I have become accustomed to. I’m sure that her first Christmas Edition will be full of new ideas as she puts her own stamp on the magazine. I look forward to catching up with your news after I’ve left. September will be a new chapter for me, and many others throughout the unit, for differing reasons, but I intend to make the most of it and enjoy my next tour.
Thank you for your support
