Anniversary celebrations

A SERIES of events will be held to mark the 75th anniversary of RAF Benson.

The base, which opened on February 1, 1939, is home to two-thirds of the RAF’s support helicopter force.

About 2,000 military and civilian personnel are based there together with about 2,000 family members who live on site.

There will be an official dinner in April followed by community events in Ewelme and Benson in May.

A freedom parade will take place in Wallingford in June.
