Squadron Padre

Reverend Paul MacCarty

 I joined 130 Bournemouth Sqn in 1976 after the previous honorary chaplain had retired. Previously I had joined the Royal Air Force in 1952 as an Officer Cadet in the general duties branch before being selected for training as a pilot. I had already gained my private pilots licence as a Cadet Sergeant in the RAF section of the CCF flying the DH82 Tiger Moth Biplane. By the time I left the RAF, we were operating the F86 Sabre and Hunter F1 fast jets. With the Sqn as well as being the Padre, I took over the administration and running of the Sqn's vehicle fleet. Together with Terry Morris we set up the Sqn communications section, which has led to the very effective radio system we operate today. I have been the Sqn Chaplain for 37 years and served as Wing Chaplain for 6 years. I can honestly say that 130 Sqn has been and still is a major part of my life.
