I am looking forward to attending the Royal Air Force Halton Apprentices Triennial Reunion on 21st September 2013. As I write this there are only 410 hours to go. At the 2010 reunion there was a very funny incident but I’m not sure if … [Read More...]
210 Entry RAF Halton Golden Anniversary of Enlistment Reunion
210th Entry RAF Halton 5oth Anniversary of Enlistment in LondonHi Guys, What a great weekend it was at the Victory Services Club, you all made it a memorable event. It was great to see all the usual from the triennials and of course the new attendees showing up was equally fantastic. A “surprise” arrival was Trevor Bailey, he turned up for a drink and just in time for the cake, he told me in an email he might be able to make it, glad he did make it. Luckily we were also able to arrange the tables into 2 reservations as the max was 14 at one sitting. The VSC was very helpful in this and agreed to split the reservation into 2 x 10 (210) as there were 16 ex-210ers and 2 wives, Cathy McNeil and Lorna Harrison, and I knew of the surprise arrival. A few of the guys that couldn’t make it sent their regards which I passed on. When Stan Bunce arrived he texted me and said he could be found in a memorable room number, Ralph “Spike” Lawton’s favourite number, 252. It has been too long we should have done this many years ago but we had other priorities with working and families I guess, and this reunion lark is maybe an age related thing. I took 3 cameras with me and took so many photos that it will take me a while to sort them out. I wanted to do the tourist bit and took over 1200 over the 5 days I was there. I have a few suitable ones I’ll eventually put up on the website but can you please send me a few of yours too for inclusion? I hope to see you all at the next reunion, not sure where it will be or when. I was attempting to combine the reunion with the triennial which I thought would be in September 2019, but I have been informed it will not be until 2020. I will have to investigate. Have a great life and see you all soon, Ozzy
210 Entry Reunion
Hi 210 Entry Brats,
I am organizing a reunion of the 50th Anniversary of our signing-on in the Royal Air Force on 4th September 1967.
If you are interested I suggest we all muster for the reunion at the Victory Services Club near MARBLE ARCH in London for dinner on 2nd September 2017 and for those of you who need accommodation you could book a room there as their room prices are quite reasonable but you could book at other places obviously. You need to be a member of the VSC, which currently costs £22.50 per year. If you go to the site of VSC you can join and reserve rooms. I am booking mine from Friday to Tuesday inclusive so I can stay in London to see a show or two. Please let me know if you’ll be able to make it by contacting me via the CONTACT page.
