8000 Mile journey to drive a field ambulance

Knights of Old Group driver, Tim Gallop has flown 8,000 miles to provide a life saving service as a member of the RAF Reserves. After joining the Royal Air Force, Tim now stationed in the Falkland Islands drives a field ambulance.

RAF Reserves serve alongside Regulars in the UK and overseas. They get the best of both worlds by balancing their own careers and home life, with the challenge and adventure of the RAF.

Life as a reservist deployed to the South Atlantic can produce some interesting opportunities. Senior Aircraftman Gallop has enjoyed a flight in a C-130 Hercules and has been winched into a search and rescue helicopter.

Royal Navy Commodore Darren Bone, Commander British Forces South Atlantic Islands, said: "RAF Reservists contribute positively and directly to the mission in exactly the same way as the other 1,200 regular service personnel and civil servants do.”
