Derek Brown President & Welfare Officer

Derek joined the Royal Air Force for his National Service after graduating from Imperial College with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. After induction at RAF Cardington he was posted to RAF Jurby for his 3 months OCTU, emerging with a Commission as a Pilot Officer, then on to RAF St. Athan for technical training. He completed his Service as a Flying Officer at RAF Abingdon with 53 Sqdn as I/C the engine bay for the Beverly transport aircraft. During this posting there were many detachments overseas including Istres in France, el Adem in Libya, Habbanya in Iraq, Bahrain, Sharjah and Aden and also in Cyprus for the Suez fiasco, where EOKA missed him.
Following demob he joined and American oil company CAL TEX in London where he met and married Diana to whom he is still devoted. They were transferred to the CAL TEX refinery in Bahrain where they spent the next 40 years. During this time he kept up his RAF contacts through RAF Muharraq, joined the Malcolm Club and the local branch of the RAFA. There was little welfare work there but plenty of fund raising with sufficient funds raised to furnish one of the rooms at Sussexdown now suitably named "The Bahrain Room". The Bahrain branch closed in the 1970's when the RAF left Bahrain and the RAFA Standard is laid up at the Anglican Cathedral in Manaman, the Capital of Bahrain. Derek and Diana have 2 children, both born in Bahrain and their son works in Dubai keeping up the family tradition.
On retirement he and Diana decided to settle in Spain, where their daughter-in-law comes from, and very soon joined the local RAFA branch as an active member, quickly becoming the branch Welfare Officer, a decision neither he nor the branch regrets. He has attended welfare training courses both here and in UK and he maintains healthy links with our surrounding organisations on welfare matters.
