Old Memories

About time too! Well done, Wg Cdr Thomas. I am old enough to still remember the old WRAF ranks of Flt Off Sqn Off etc etc and the discussion of why women could NEVER fly our aircraft. I won't...

Equality in the Eyes of the Law

As we are all equal in the eyes of the law, may we expect to see the Taliban taking their fighters to court for the appalling atrocities practised by them against Allied military personnel? Thought...

Jimmy Flint RIP

As a member of the 50 & 61 Sqns' Association, I've had the pleasure of knowing Jimmy for a number of years. He was the most modest of men and was the CO of 50 Sqn, RAF Skellingthorpe, at the end of...

FIADGE

There was no official Stanley stn crest per se, but many, many unofficial ones. I think Able Labels must have made a bomb. As the engineer for FIADGE Support (83-84), ours read: "FIADGE the unit...
