Tornado crew, Sqn Ldr Gary Lennox and Sqn Ldr Adrian Paul 'Kev' Weeks were both killed on the 22nd of January 1991 during a low level ground attack mission on Ar Rutbah radar site in Iraq.
On the 14th February Flt Lt Hick's Tornado was hit by a SAM missile during an attack on an airfield in central Iraq. Flt Lt Clark, his pilot command ejected some minutes later when he could no longer control the aircraft. Flt Lt Hicks was found to be dead. Flt Lt Clark became a POW and was subsequently released.
Each year the SIG will take a minute to remember a different Tornado crew who made the ultimate sacrifice.
They shall grow not old, as we are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember then.
