Massive undertaking - good luck.

Between 4FTS and 237 OCU was a Hunter lead in course and on 18/04/1983 we took T7 WX372 Honington Vy and return.

In a later incarnation on 45(R) we did a Welsh away day for John Reid (Armed Forces Minister), on 12/3/1998 XX495 Nholt, Vy, St A, Nholt.

Book on MPC Firings

When STCAAME closed. 2 of the chaps put together the history of the establishment with articles on the history and the missiles etc. This book comes with CD in the back that has all of the Sqn Photos that were taken each week they arrived. A real historical gem.

Amazon Amazon

It says 'not available' at the moment but put it on your watch list.

Krystal n chips. Happy memories! I had a single room in one of the old nissen huts photographed in the review when I was filling time at Valley after getting my wings at RAF Swinderby in 1957. Valley was training new Fleet Air Arm pilots at that time and I don't think they were in the old huts, which were very useful if you had a girlfriend from Holyhead!
