Since its foundation in 1979 the 101 Squadron Association has kept its members in touch and informed through regular editions of the Newsletter.
The No 1 issue of the “101 Sqn Association Newsletter” was produced in October 1979 and covered the first reunion held at RAF Waddington in September that year. This first Newsletter was a single type-written page copied on a Roneograph, but nowadays technology has moved on!
Initially edited by the Association Secretary the Newsletter gained a dedicated editor in 1993 when 101 Sqn Lancaster veteran Peter Kaye took up the reins.
Between 1998 and 2017 the revamped newsletter was edited by Gary Weightman, a 101 Sqn VC10 veteran. Since then it has undergone a further re-design by our new editor, Graham Finch.
“101 Matters!” is published three times a year with editions every Spring, Summer and Winter. It is a colourful and vibrant Newsletter with items to interest members from all eras of 101 Sqn’s history. It contains information concerning memorial events and the Annual Reunion as well as historical articles and letters from members. Copies are sent out to the Association’s members around the world by conventional post or by email.
