77 Squadron Association’s Reunion 2019 takes place the weekend of 14th and 15th September at the Yorkshire Air Museum and Allied Air Forces Memorial at Elvington, near York.
We are expecting that our President, Professor and former pilot, Bill Ballantyne, will be with us again. On Saturday we will as usual have a short wreath-laying ceremony at our memorial followed by a reception and dinner. The after-dinner speaker this year is Dr John Wright, honorary archivist at the Yorkshire Air Museum and he will be telling us the stories of “Some Unsung Heroes of 77”. On Sunday we are pleased that museum chaplain, the Revd Taff Morgan (a former RAF Tornado and Vulcan navigator), will be leading a service for us in the chapel at 10.30. Taff is always a delight and speaks with relevance and insights into the experience of aircrew.
This is a very important way of getting together to commemorate our squadron, particulary as it was disbanded so many years ago so has no connection with the existing Royal Air Force. We look forward to seeing you!
The booking form is in the documents box at the top right of this page. The price for the dinner is £30 for members of the Association and their guests and £36 for non-members.
