About Tony :
Sgt Anthony (Tony) Ayre, an Engineering Technician (Avionics) by trade, had provided 29 years of exemplary service to the Royal Air Force (RAF) before he was tragically killed on 21 July 2014. Having spent a week of summer leave with his mother at his small house near RAF Leuchars, and set to return to his place of work at RAF Halton the next day, Tony was travelling to a friend’s house for dinner when he was involved in a fatal road traffic collision.
