Former Lance Corporal Darren Kamara served in the RAF Regiment for seven years between 2006 and 2013, completing two tours of Afghanistan and one tour of Iraq. In a new blog, he tells us what being a Rock Ape means to him and why the Regiment will always feel like a family. http://bit.ly/2lH30jX

Looking for inspiration for your Great British Sunday Lunch? Well, look no further than this lamb, asparagus and mint salad by Si and Dave, aka The Hairy Bikers. As they put it themselves: "Using beautiful British ingredients, this salad is spring on a plate."

And we couldn't agree more. Check out the recipe here: http://bit.ly/2kPVG6w

In 1942, the RAF Regiment was formed as an integral Corps within the Royal Air Force aimed at providing combat support and defence to the RAF bases and overseas operations. It was the Gunners that carried out these specialist and often dangerous operations across the globe, deploying to countries such as Iraq, the Falklands, Burma and the Balkans. In a new blog former Gunner Carl Harding tells us of about the time he served in Sarajevo in the early 90s, recalling one incident that will stay with him forever. http://bit.ly/2lGPxZF

This Valentine's Day we're celebrating RAF couples and would like to bring you the story of Mark and Janet Bosanquet-Bryant who met and fell in love at high school and this year will be marking 32 years of marriage. It was only a year into their marriage, however, that their lives were turned upside down when Mark severed his spinal cord in an accident that left him paralysed from the neck down. After Mark's accident, we supported the couple by finding them a new home and adapting it to meet Mark's needs as wheelchair user. Read their story: http://bit.ly/2lwOTOp
