Research Work

I have carried out (or I am in the process of carrying out) research on the following airmen who served with the squadron:

  • HA Williams (1941)

As it has been a quiet month on the research front, I have been spending my spare time updating the website.

Scampton Heritage Centre

I have started to work with the Heritage Centre at RAF Scampton to put together a short summary of the squadron’s time there (1975 – 1982) for inclusion in their displays.

Vulcan Get Together 2019 (6th July 2019)

I received this message from the daughter of the organiser of the Vulcan Get Together Event:

“I would just like to thank all those that attended this event on Saturday;  Dad said it went really well and all enjoyed it. He is looking forward to seeing you all again next year, along with any other personnel who would like to attend the event; it is probably going to be on the 4th July at the same location (RAF Waddington)”

If you would like to attend next year’s event, please register your interest with Tony Smith (01243 553079)

Operation Lancaster (Goodwill Tour) 1946

On 27th May 1946 it was announced that No 35 Squadron would take part in a goodwill visit to the USA during July and August 1946.

Throughout this month, I have been publishing a diary on the 35 Squadron Research Facebook Page which summarises the squadron’s activities on each day of the tour. This will continue during August and a consolidated record will be added to the website at the end of this process
