On 23rd September, Flying Officer Jonathan Rymel was invited to attend the Royal Graduation at RAF Cranwell to be presented with the RAF Reserves Sword of Honour, The MacRobert Sword.

The MacRobert Sword is awarded to the Officer Cadet considered by the RAF College Commandant to be, overall, the best of the Reserves Officers Initial Training Courses. Usually, it is awarded each year but due to Covid-19, this was a combined award for 2019 and 2020.

The sword is donated by the MacRobert Trust and is presented at a ‘Royal Graduation’.

Flying Officer Rymel said:
“I was honoured to receive my sword from Her Royal Highness Princess Anne, the Princess Royal. The RAF Reserve has given me many opportunities that both complement and enhance my contribution to my civilian career as an IT professional.”
