End of an era for RAF Kinloss

The drawdown of RAF Kinloss and its transition to the Army is now complete, with the handover ceremony to 39 Engineer Regiment on 26 July. The Station will now be known as Kinloss Barracks.

From BritishForcesNews:

 After 73 years, the RAF's presence at RAF Kinloss draws to a close.

The few remaining air force personnel stand alongside the new tenants of the base -- the Army.

Accompanied by the Kinloss Pipes and Drums, the RAF Ensign is lowered for the final time.

Kinloss had been home to the Royal Air Force since 1939.
