LEST WE FORGET

       

               


 

 

 

 
  Lieutenant
Philip GREEN
 

 


    Lt Philip Green, 30, was the pilot of Red Rat 35.  He was born in North Walsham, Norfolk on 26th July 1972 and is the son of Richard and Karen. Philip had an elder sister, Juliet, and a younger sister, Catherine. He is loved and missed by all especially for his gentle, wry humour, his sense of the ridiculous and his smile.

    Philip's loss has been felt most particularly by his girlfriend, Louise Cameron, of Coylton Ayrshire and, of course her family. Philip loved Scotland and spent many happy times there.

    Philip attended Carres Grammar School in Sleaford, Lincs. He had many friends from this period with whom he always kept in touch and tried to meet up with when visiting the family home. Philip began flying training with the Oxford University Air Squadron and subsequently won a flying award with Squires Aviation before he joined the Royal Navy. Prior to joining 849 Philip flew the Sea King helicopter with both 810 and 819 Naval Air Squadron in the Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Role. He served in many areas gaining a wide and varied flying experience and achieved green rating status the highest possible accolade within the Navy

    In October 2002 Philip became the proud uncle of Ethan, the first child of Juliet and Kevin. Philip was to have been Ethan's godfather: sadly he died before he could take on the role which he had been honoured to be asked to perform.

    The remaining member of the family to miss Philip is Sam, the family's beloved Springer Spaniel.  When at home Philip loved to walk our family dog, Sam, on Caythorpe Heath. Sam's excitement was unbounded when Philip put on his walking boots and it is hard to say which of the two enjoyed these "boy's walks" the most.
