Centenary Reunion Plans

As shown below, the main event starts on Saturday afternoon with the 100 Squadron Open Day followed by an sunset parade and flypast leading to the Champagne Reception and Gala Dinner.  An Anniversary Church Service will be held on Sunday morning in St Bede’s, RAF Leeming to conclude the celebrations of 100 Squadron’s Centenary.

Inevitably, the numbers able to attend the Saturday evening Champagne Reception and Hangar Centenary Party may have to be limited. Hotel/B&B accommodation has been block booked by the Secretary.
