Newsletter 62 – Published September 2015 Snippets from newsletter: This latest edition of the Squadron News (No 62),

  • continues with the stories of both Desmond Hughes later to become Air Vice Marshal of the RAF, and Terry Fensome fantastic life story
  • It also has the introduction of only the second march to be dedicated to an RAF Squadron.
  • The first to 617 The Dambuster Squadron of Bomber Command and now “We Defy” for our 264 Squadron of Fighter Command.

I am trying to “push it” as hard as I can to try and make it a ‘Classic’. So if anyone is interested please contact me. We are hoping to arrange yet another Reunion based at Brooklands Air Museum but nothing is finalised yet, but watch this space. Arrangements in hand to award Adam Glynn an Honorary Life Membership of the Squadron Association. (See in the latest Squadron News)
