RAFA Rutland the Best RAFA Branch

RAFA Rutland the Best RAFA Branch

Despite being the smallest County in UK, we have a thriving Branch that meets monthly on the first Wednesday of each month. We believe that we are the best RAFA Branch. Every year the RAFA Rutland Branch collects funds for the RAFA Wings Appeal to support those who have served in the RAF over the years. Please support this worthwhile appeal.

RAFA Items For Sale If you want to wear that RAFA Rutland sweater or buy a RAFA tie or badge then talk to Sonia Sutton who manages the RAFA Rutland RAFATRAD account. Remember if you buy through the Branch we raise some more funds for Wings Appeal.
