Club Meeting and Ladies Evening

Mon 20th August 2012

Flt Lt Alison McDowell, a helicopter pilot with the RAF Search & Rescue team of 22 Squadron based at RAF Valley, with President Trevor during her presentation to the Club on the 20 August 2012.

"Allie" gave us an insight into her last tour of duty in Afghanistan. During her 3-month deployment she was the Liaison Officer for the Afghan women who were now part of the emerging Afghan air force.  These women could not be instructed or trained by a male member of the team.  Her visit to Afghanistan and the impact it had on her was displayed by the short video she had made as a record of her experiences.

She is also a support and fund raiser for "Help the Heroes" and will be taking part in a 300 mile charity cycle event to Cardiff.
