the RAF Gan Tie story

gan tie 3

Photos from David Slane who tells us  The idea was, as you were boarding the outbound flight from Gan on your repatriation to the UK, you were ‘presented ‘with the tie.   The description is as follows……the “NO ENTRY” sign symbolized  the 9 months away from “it”. And the Arabic writing roughly translated as “Not-Having” !   (For 9 months). To my knowledge these ties were not sold to anyone  and were only presented to those who had completed the required 9 month tour.  { Not really a compensation to those of us who had just been married prior to being posted to Gan }
