This years reunion was held at Bosworth Hall Hotel Market Bosworth. The dinner was held on the Saturday evening with 45 members present. The Honorary President Eddie Kelly announced the retirement of our Chairman Terry Gill, and Roger Kissane has now taken over that position.

Roger had attended an RAF 100 meeting with the Chief of Air-staff’s office to discuss ideas on the forthcoming 100th anniversary of the RAF in 2018. We will be kept upto date with the arrangements via the website at RAF100.

It turned out to be a very successful weekend with members from the Venom element joining us for the first time.
