The reunion, in this our centenary year, takes place over the weekend 5th, 6th and 7th of May. Once again, we are extremely grateful to the Station Commander for welcoming us back to RAF Waddington and putting many station facilities at our disposal. Being a rather special occasion this year, we are expecting a really good attendance and members are advised to book early to avoid disappointment. Please contact our Secretary to make your booking:
Secretary: Squadron Leader H M Horscroft (Ret’d)
9 Church Lane, Eagle, Lincoln LN6 9DJ
Telephone: 01522 868 653
The outline programme of events appears below. Further details, timings and transport schedule will be included on this page and in welcome packs which will await attendees on arrival.
Friday 5th May. The opening event, the Meet and Greet, will take place in the Officers’ Mess, RAF Waddington, starting at 7.30 pm.
Saturday 6th May. Assemble at the Officers’ Mess car park at 11.00 am prior to being escorted to Station Headquarters for a group photograph in front of Waddington’s memorial statue. Lunch will be taken at Mill Lodge on Canwick Hill, Lincoln, before moving across the road to visit the International Bomber Command Centre at 2 pm. Saturday’s programme will conclude with the Annual Dinner in the Sergeants’ Mess at RAF Waddington. Heightened security means we will all have to be escorted onto the base, so we will meet up at the Officers’ Mess car park at 6.30 pm.
Sunday 7th May. At 11.00 am on Sunday morning there will be a service of remembrance in the Memorial Garden at RAF Waddington. Hopefully, the service will be conducted by our Padre, the Reverend Ian Partridge , with accompanying music by the RAF Waddington station band. The concluding event will be Sunday lunch at the Pyewipe Inn, Saxilby Road, Lincoln.
