93rd Entry R.A.F.Halton
The 45th year after graduation reunion was held on the 17th May 2007 at The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight R.A.F. Conninsby.
We had a very informative guided tour of the museum; and an interesting talk with serving fitters who could not believe that these grey
haired spectators were all once J/T's. After leaving the museum we gathered at The Petwood Hotel Woodhall Spa for lunch and a look
at the many 617 Squadron artefacts.

From Woodhall Spa we travelled to Retford where we stayed at the West Retford Hotel. Following pre dinner drinks we had an excellent meal.
Once again Ginge Knight gave us a recycle of Halton tunes on the bagpipes. This was followed by each member telling their life story after
leaving Halton. Friday morning those with energy left, attacked the roads of Lincolnshire to visit East Kirby and Lancaster "Just Jane" and the
other exhibits of the Panton brothers.
Finally we must thank Dennis Williams for organising the event and John Hygate for the photographs.
