Sir,

Who is the guest of honour going to be? When I spoke to Col McM he was tight lipped about it.

I'll be going for sure!

The guest of honour issue is still with the Chain of Command.

Really, though, the guest of honour is everyone who ever served in or around Sea Kings. Whether you you flew them, fixed them, supplied them, controlled them, or sailed on the same ship as them- all are welcome to attend the events and take part in what is certain to be an epic end of an aviation era in Canada.
