101 Squadron Association Reunions

The Association has held annual reunions of 101 Squadron veterans and their guests since the first at RAF Waddington in September 1979. During the early years of the Association many of the reunions were hosted by friendly messes on RAF stations but the introduction of contract catering in the RAF during the 1990’s made this arrangement increasingly difficult.

From 1999 the Association’s Annual General Meeting and Reunion Dinner has been held in the splendid Lincoln County Assembly Rooms, but from 2019 future reunions will be held at or near RAF Brize Norton and it is hoped that it’s more central location will make it easier for more members to attend.

Due to the ongoing COVID restrictions, the committee has reluctantly made the decision to cancel the 2021 memorial service at Ludford. However, a small service and a flypast from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will be recorded in due course, and this will be available for members to view via a link, from 11.00am 13th June. This link will be sent to members via email.

Plans are underway for our Annual Reunion, scheduled for 8 October 2021 at RAF Brize Norton. Further updates will be published in our newsletter (available to all 101Squadron Association members), and on this website over the coming months.
