617 Sqn’s celebration in 1968 at RAF Scampton on the 25thanniversary of the formation of the Sqn. All original Sqn members stayed with SQN Air crew. 83 and 27 SQN took over 617’s QRA for the weekend.

Barnes Wallis was a guest of honour. There was a full programme including visit to Guy Gibson’s black Labradors grave. A real walk down memory lane. The ladies each had a corsage from covent garden. The ‘Oldies’ (Mostly ages 50ish) Drank us under the table! Money was no object: We were broke for months afterwards!
