Gibrael marks bonds between Gibraltar and RAF with London event

The Gibraltar-Israel Chamber of commerce together with the Royal Air Force (RAF) held an event at the RAF museum in London targeted at the Jewish and Israeli communities living in London.

The event included a wonderful dinner held in the unique setting of the RAF museum, amongst the various historic planes, and other impressive military exhibits.

“In the evening we were delighted to listen to Joshua Levine's fascinating lecture on the significant role of the Jewish heroes who fought with the RAF during World War II, and how they volunteered and did so with pride, joy and love,” said Ayelet Mamo Shay, chairwoman of Gibrael Gibraltar-Israel Chamber of Commerce.


“As part of my role, I always try to promote the special connection between Gibraltar, Britain and Israel as we did earlier this year at the Gibraltar House in London in cooperation with the Finance Centre.”

The bond between the RAF and Gibraltar has a long history.

Gibraltar is an important base for Britain and the RAF for decades, and the RAF has played a crucial role in protecting the Rock during 2nd World War.

Caroline Smith the Head of Development at the Royal Air Force Museum said: “We had such a wonderful event with our guests from Gibrael.”

“Thank you Ayelet Mamo Shay for all your support and cooperation for the evening.”

Gibrael Chamber would like to thank Sir Glen, Maggie, Renee, Caroline and all the other amazing staff at the RAF museum for their cooperation, organization and hospitality, and we have no doubt that this is just the beginning of a long relationship.
