Pete Garton

I served as an Armourer in the RAF for 12 years from 1980-1992, half of that time I removed/ fitted and serviced seats from Phantoms,Jaguars,Hawk and Tornado aircraft in U.K. Germany and Saudi Arabia. A very responsible, demanding Yet very rewarding job, knowing your work was the pilots last chance of survival and had to work as advertised, each and every time it was called upon. Which is why our work was checked and checked again before leaving the bay, and again during and after fitting.
