Carol Vorderman - Group Captain (Retired)

Ewan McGregor, I think that’s how you spell it. He is well know last time I checked, and slightly connected to RAF.


His brother was a Tornado Pilot, and apparently referred to as Obi Two…


That would be awesome

Not sure how true that is, I thought it was just something he referred to himself as in a tweet to his brother. None the less, having Obi wan Kenobi as an honorary Grp capt would be amazing

How about a requirement that they have at least been an Air cadet or Staff at some time?

As selected by the civil serpents to be the perfect puppet! :wink:

There is another wonderful Jim Hacker / Yes Minister sketch where he decries the thought of being Prime Minister, having no ambitions to move in that direction, but if selected, he might consider…

I will be that Jim Hacker! :rofl:


Spoils the point of someone from out the organisation coming in. Majority of people weren’t cadets & of the remainder the majority weren’t air cadets. A military link would be good but I wouldnt have that as a requirement.

Someone asked earlier what we would expect of an ambassador & I think the closest example are the good will ambassadors

I was going to throw in the suggestion of Dan Snow but he seems to have already been snaffled by the Royal Navy.

Not even a requirement for honorary Colonels in Chief, why would you require it for a brand ambassador?


If you want a historian then I would go for James Holland who has written some excellent RAF related books, or if you want to be really radical go for Jeremy Clarkson.


I’m a huge fan of James Holland and he is very much involved in his local community.

Getting him on board would almost get Al Murray saying nice things about us too.

I would recommend his books on the Dambusters and the Battle of Britain, very readable.

Can we make people honorary warrant officers rather than Groupies?

Nah let’s not disrespect them

Were on par with God dont you know


Out of curiosity, who would you have as a celebrity honourary Warrant Officer?

Appreciate that WO are meant to be close to God as you can be but I don’t think Justin Welby has the voice projection.

Brian Blessed on the other hand :slight_smile:


Cpl Nauyokas now Sgt RAF would be kinda cool, but before this generation


More of a bunker than par.
