Reunion News

Every year we have a well attended Reunion and Dinner - in recent years it has been held at RAF Lyneham, Wiltshire, the previous home of 24 Squadron and now at RAF Brize Norton from 2011 onwards. At present there are over 180 members - mostly former 24's at home and abroad, but also including Honorary or Friend members.
