Unfortunately, due to operational commitments, 654 Sqn and 659 Sqn couldn't be there. Also, the scheduled Auster IV was rain-bound at Wickenby. Fortunately, a quick call to nearby Netherthorpe resulted in a Tiger Moth as a stand-in, which was nice surprise for everyone.
Despite a miss-print in the local press (which gave the wrong date!), everyone who should have been there was. There was a healthy turnout by the 613 Sqn Association. Others included the Royal British Legion, RAF Association, 1325 Sqn ATC Dinnington, plus a whole host of other guests and veterans.
The reception was very well attended at the Black Lion in Firbeck, which had laid on a superb spread. Overall, a very well received and attended event,on good weather. Unveiling and dedication gallery here.
Right - what's the next project...........?
