I received this in an email yesterday.

“I was team leader and founder of RNAS Lossiemouth MRT. We were never part of Kinloss MRT as a sub unit,but an individual unit often working with Kinloss. We were on the “Call-0ut” list and went independently to incidents. I was also on the Scottish Mountain Rescue Committee and occasional instructor at Glenmore Lodge.

Don MacGregor”

Thanks for that Don.

I remember some of the Navy Lossiemouth Team our with us at Laggan in 72?

The RAF Kinloss MR Team moved to RAF Lossiemouth after Kinloss closed In 2012 and is the only RAF MR Team in Scotland.

The team move in 2012

There are two other RAF Teams at RAF Valley in Wales and RAF Leeming in Yorkshire.
