RAF Honington Servicemen Welcomed Home
The families of some of our servicemen have been welcoming them back home after six long months in Afghanistan.
2 Squadron RAF Regiment based at RAF Honington in Suffolk have been based at Camp Bastion after leaving the UK last October and being away over Christmas.
The families has been busy preparing themselves for the homecoming with some of the wives and girlfriends telling Heart about how outfits and trips to the beauty salon are all planned weeks in advance to make sure the outfit is just right for the big day.
There was a nervous wait during the day, as the families got text messages telling them about their progress on their trip home.
Last night they arrived back in Suffolk and were marched into one of the hangers where all their family and friends were waiting for them.
Lots of the families had created banners and posters with messages like 'welcome home Daddy' and 'Daddy's home' and the men were greeted with a huge cheer as they were marched into the hanger.
They were then allowed to meet up with their families after half a year away from home, with children and wives running up to hug their husbands and fathers.
The squadron isn't expected to be sent back to Afghanistan until October next year.
