Lincoln RAF civilian receives presidential award

A Lincoln RAF Association National Service civilian has been awarded with a Presidential Certificate for his long service and commitment.

74-year-old Michael Armiger began his service for the RAF in 1969 and has since carried out duties as the Chair of the Lincoln Committee.

Michael has been part of many memorial parades in the city and helped to organise a number of fundraising events. He was nominated by committee members of the Lincoln branch.

The award was presented to Michael at a ceremony in Chichester on March 22 and association members across the country were also recognised for New Years Honours.

Michael said: “I have always stood by the motto of friendship, help and support. I am extremely honoured to have been nominated.

“It was all quite a surprise really, I wasn’t told about the nomination and all my family were in on it too. I had no idea they were doing a profile.

“In my years at the association we have conducted many fundraising events such as holiday camps and various stalls at the RAF Waddington base.

“I have to say that I owe a lot of my commitment to the association to having a very understanding wife.”
