Norwegian military join CHF for Service of Remembrance
Personnel from the Commando Helicopter Force currently in northern Norway on the annual Clockwork detachment held a Service of Remembrance on the Royal Norwegian Air Force base in Bardufoss.
Members of the Norwegian Air Force and Army, Station Command, the FAA Association who are now officers in the Norwegian military and children from the local school joined CHF for the parade and service, which took place on the 11 November at 11 o-clock. Two children from the local school were given the honour of laying the wreath on behalf of Clockwork personnel and members of the FAA Association also laid their own poppies.
After the service, the Norwegian military personnel, the veterans and the school children were invited to join CHF back on the Clockwork base for tea and cakes and treated to traditional British fish and chips for lunch.
The parade was organised and commanded by CPO Steve Bright, Clockwork Senior Maintenance Rating. This is the second year the Norwegians have taken part in the parade which has become an established event continuing the tradition of British and Norwegian forces working together and building strong bonds.
