Letter from the Chairman
A letter fom the Chairman regarding the Spirit Of Coltishall Association Annual Battle of Britain Ball
The 29th November 2011 marked the end of an era as Wing Commander Sara Mackmin handed over the reins to Wing Commander Sue Jarvis.
Sara is off to pasture new within the wider Royal Air Force Family, we send her best wishes from the Association and hope that we will continue to see her at the annual reunions; when her new role permits
We welcome Wing Commader Jarvis to the Association and hope to see her 'in the bar' at RAF Lossiemouth, for the 2012 reunion. We look forward to the traditional state of the nation brief which provides the membership with an insight onto the progress of the Squadron and its personnel
I had the privelege of being able to attend the SAF 70 dedication service at the National Arboretum to recognise 70 years of continous SAR service. Photos of the occasion can be found here.
My thanks toto all contributors for thier excellent offerings
This year's Reunion was held at RAF Lossiemouth, home of D Flight.
We all met for the traditional Meet & Greet in the hotel on the evening of Friday.
We were hosted by OC 202 Sqn and OC D Flight
The Flight personnel gave an excellent insight into thier role, explaining in detail the equipment used and, in particular the role or Paramedic Winchman
The Formal Dinner in the Officers Mess on Saturday night was a great success. Following on from the speeches Mike Lakey presented D Flight with a painting of the Fineagle rescue.
See Ian Robins more detailed memories of the visit
