It is with deepest regret that I have to announce the Death of Tony Gronert. Tony served on 249 as a Venom Pilot under S/Ldr John Gibbons , S/Ldr Gough S/Ldr  Jock Maitland from 1954 until 1957. He was a great supporter of the association and will be sadly missed. Our Sympathy goes out to his partner Mary, his relatives and friends from all the members of 249 Squadron Association.
