Some years ago, I am thinking maybe it was 30 years, whilst I was serving at Royal Air Force Lynehm I was presented with my Long Service and Good Conduct medal (LSGC) by my then Station Commander
Group Captain Parsons MBE.
This was the one and only time in that two year tour at RAF Lyneham that I ever met with him.
Only a few years later I heard that he had died.
(The LSGC Medal is aka the Undetected Crime Medal)
