News & Info

I heard early in January that one of our old members Bill Griffiths, affectionately known as “Taff”, passed away in December. Sadly, I didn’t know or we could have had a representative of the
Squadron at his funeral…

I also heard belatedly of the passing also of ‘Dusty’ Miller, our condolences to all the families.

Also had a letter from Tim Kendrick searching for Jim Staugham after reading an article.

I still am getting enquiries from Overseas on ex-member’s families asking for information, with some small degree of success at times.

An article that I wrote a year ago has suddenly appeared in the official magazine of the Royal Air Force Association Magazine, “Air Mail”, I wonder if it will bring in more members for the
association’s flagging numbers.

In this article I mentioned our March “We-Defy” by her Majesty’s band of the Royal Marines and the Central Band of the Royal Air Force and the original recording by the Yeovil Town band, all of these can be found on this website..
