Death Of Crawford (Pat) Wedlock – 12th Entry

I have been notified of the death of one of our members, Crawford (Pat) Wedlock. The following announcement was made on Facebook by John Davies (303rd) and was passed to me by Bryan Hoare.
 
‘It is with a tremendous sadness that I include the passing of Crawford (Pat) Wedlock who died suddenly on Saturday, 4 July 2020 at his home in Portrush, Co. Antrim.  He was 84. Pat joined the RAF in January 1951 at RAF St. Athan as a member of the 12th Entry. Following training he was posted to Aldergrove and subsequent postings included Rheindahlen, Jever, Edenmore, Aberporth, Leconfield, 4 Sqn Gutersloh, Laarbruch and HQ STC High Wycombe.  Following promotion to Warrant Officer in 1974, he was Families Officer at St. Athan, Adjutant 203 Sqn Luqa and finally Chief Clerk at 16MU Stafford. He retired from the RAF in 1981 after which he spent 5 years as a Warrant Officer with the SOAF. In his later years he was actively involved with RAFA and was awarded a National Presidential Certificate in recognition for his hard work and dedication. Pat was a lovely man who left a lasting impression and he will be sadly missed by his many friends.  Condolences go to his widow Marion and his extended family.’
 
Our Association would also like to offer our sincere sympathies to Pat’s widow and family at this difficult time.

  1. On behalf of the small RAF AAA membership in Northern Ireland together with spouses and partners, I would like to say how deeply saddened we all were to learn of Crawford’s passing. He was a terrific guy and an absolutely true friend who will be sadly missed by us all.
