I will be out on operations from Dec 15 until Jul 16. I will have good connectivity from Minhad and therefore will remain as the RAFGSA Responsible Person. For practical purposes the day-to-day management of the RAFGSA will be undertaken by Dave Fidler. Dave is authorised to make all decisions regarding the management of the RAFGSA and to engage with 22 Gp with regard to the FDTC(H). Under the terms of the RAF SSMP, Dave is not authorised to accept any new risks without discussing them with me.

Please give Dave your full support in my absence.
