An RAF Airman's Blog

And The Winner Is…ME…

This blog has just been given an award.  The DefenceIQ Best Defence Industry Blog 2012.

And I’d like to thank everyone who nominated me, the judging panel for choosing me, and more importantly all the many readers, followers, RT-ers, Sharers…who spend their time reading and talking about my blog, and helping to make it a success.

It comes at a particularly poignant time, the twilight of my RAF career.  It’s kind of nice.

It’s actually lovely.  To be recognised by people for doing something that you enjoy doing is just the loveliest thing. And to do it up against other quality bloggers, who know their stuff; who are serious and knowledgeable and aren’t just gobby chancers ‘spinning a dit’ like me, well that’s just the best biscuit. It’s an absolute honour.

So THANK YOU once again to DefenceIQ for the award.  But more I’d like to thank every reader who has used some of their valuable time looking at what I have written, and those who had gone the extra mile and recommended my stuff to other people.

You are all pretty ace. Thanks.

    Well done, RAF Airman. You have brought the conflict in “A Certain Dusty Place” to life. I have enjoyed most of your posts, wept at a few and laughed out loud on some memorable occasions.

  3. Well done! Congratulations Alex, well recognised and deserved x

  4. That’s because you are a good writer, and we are privileged to read you. Congratulations. Well deserved.

    Very well deserved indeed. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading the insights, which have been painful and hard hitting at times, but at other times, inspirational. Congratulations

  7. Top man. Well deserved!

    Many, many congratulations. This is very well deserved and it is wonderful that somebody who has had his boots on the ground rather than an armchair warrior has won the award. I think I speak for many when I say that you have taught us so much about life in Afghanistan which is never shown on television or printed in the papers. Well done.

  9. Congratulations – well deserved, indeed!
