Play / pause First RAF Team

First RAF Team

  • Flt. Lt. Gareth Davies
  • Interview by: Jess Boydon


We have a photograph which is 100 years old

of the first RAF tug-of-war team,

which we've recreated to celebrate the RAF 100.

We feel that we wanted to be part of that.

Again as it being a little bit boastful

but tinged with much pride,

is that we are one of the few teams

that can prove our heritage does have 100 years of history.

We feel connected in that way,

but the recreation of the photograph

was something that afforded our young people

the opportunity to see what tug-of-war

looked like back then.

Quite frankly, it wasn't that much different really.

It's still eight people pulling on a rope.
