I have recently received some more photos from the Canberra Days from Colin Birks, see the Squadron Album.

249 Malaya 65249 in Malaya November 63

I have received this message from David and Tina Calvert.

“On our way back from holiday (on the canals), we stopped at the National Memorial Arboretum. I had been told that the 249 plaque had been replaced after refurbishment. I am attaching a photo of the plaque and another showing its location. If anyone wishes to see it, it is a little to the south-west of the RAFA memorial just a half-dozen yards from the 2 Squadron memorial; that can be seen in the background.”
