RE: The Royal Air Force


Shortly after arriving at 57 Sqdn I was sent to RAF Gaydon to do a Valiant course.

When I returned we had been re-equipped with Valiants.

I visited Martlesham Heath Control Tower yesterday and the museum is open from Easter to October on a Sunday. A wonderful museum with a lot of artefacts on display, I am not a member of the museum but these volunteers do a wonderful job of keeping the memories alive and they certainly make you feel at homesmile

As a young teenage school boy I was evacuated out of Aden in 1967 during the terrorism of the day to RAF Honington. We were accommodated at Honington Rise, Just up from the Jackdaw garage. If it does not break any rules of the site, may I mention that I have just had a book published relating to the experiences of the time and the reception of the Suffolk people, which was a good reflection on the local people. The book is called "From barren rocks ... to living stones", and can be seen at http://www.authorhouse.co.uk/BookStore/ItemDetail~bookid~52437.aspx

Interesting enough, when subsequetly joining the RAF I was posted to 57 squadron at Marham. 57 sqdn was one of the squadrons that previously occupied Honington.
