MAcr John ‘Angry’ Anderson

leaving the Service having served for a total of 34 years in the armed forces

Master Aircrewman John ‘Angry’ Anderson was marched off RAF Waddington in bowler hat after a quick spin around base on one of the Station’s fire engines at the end of an illustrious Service career. Anderson, was a highly experienced Weapons Systems Operator (Linguist), with operational flying experience on the Nimrod R1 and Rivet Joint aircraft. Starting his military career in the Royal Navy, after 16 years afloat, Angry made the wise decision and swapped the sea for the skies and joined the RAF, and subsequently served another 18 years before finally taking the decision to hang up
his boots.

He has supported operations around the world including Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya to name a few. He has also served in the US as part of the UK team that was responsible for bringing the Rivet Joint aircraft into Service with the RAF.

Recognising and rewarding his contributions to the Service, Angry has received a number of Commendations. He has also been recognised for his efforts by civilian organisations, including the Association of Old Crows who awarded him the International Military award.

A huge thank you to MAcr Anderson from all at RAF Waddington and best wishes for the future.
