On Wednesday 5th of October, Derrick the Bear made the 3419 nautical mile journey to Camp Bastion, Afghanistan. Derrick had a special mission – to raise awareness and money for the Forces Children’s Trust.
Since arriving, he has been hosted by 653 Sqn Army Air Corps.
Initially Derrick teamed up with Capt Bull an Apache Pilot which allowed Derrick to cover many miles and see much of the operations. Now Capt Bull has left, he is working with Capt Hewitt, who has ensured Derrick can get a flying log book to record his adventures.
