    Please note that The Military Times is not handling the sales of tickets or any other aspect of the RAF 100th Anniversary celebrations. We cannot therefore process tickets or pass on applications for entry to any of the events.

    In the above case, applications should have reached Mrs Michèle Small, SO3 RAF Ceremonial Events, RAF Ceremonial Office, RAF Northolt, Ruislip, Middlesex, HA4 6NG before the 3 April 2018.

    If you applied for tickets please contact Mrs Small on the above address to confirm whether or not you have been allocated tickets.

    Good luck! Ed.
