AN RAF corporal has returned to his old school as part of a national campaign.

Corporal Husnain Mohammed from RAF Halton, Aylesbury, took the RAF100 Baton to Marsden Heights Community College in Nelson as part of the UK-wide RAF100 celebrations.

Corporal Mohammed was joined at the event by his former teacher, Michael Carradice, who has seen him go from student to becoming a role model for others.

The RAF corporal said: “Coming back to my old school, representing the RAF is something I could never have imagined.

"I hope that today has encouraged the current crop of students to look into the amazing training and career opportunities across the RAF.

"I can honestly say it is a brilliant place to develop on both a professional and personal level.”

The visit comes as part of the RAF100 celebrations marking 100 years of service, which features 100 days of events, activities and other initiatives running until the end of September.

Corporal Mohammed brought the RAF100 Baton, which is being taken across the country as part of the celebration, to Marsden Heights Community College and presented it to students during an assembly and spoke to them about his experiences from the classroom to the RAF.
