550 Squadron Association Reunion 2021
The Association Reunion was planned to be held in North Killingholme 9th-11th July 2021.
However in June the decision was taken to CANCEL the reunion because of the prevailing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation in the country. For more information see the cancellation details issued when the decision was announced.
Although our reunion was cancelled, a small group of committee members paid their respects at 2.00pm on 10th July on behalf of all the Association members. As you can see, the scene was set for this very short service, a musician from 866 Squadron cadets played the Last Post, wreaths were laid, and Poppy crosses planted on behalf of some members.
The event took place in rather overcast conditions to the extent that had the planned reunion taken place it is rather unlikely that the Spitfire flypast could have taken place. Due to the very low heavy cloud it is unlikely that the BBMF Spitfire would have been airborne.
Afterwards a number of people retired to The Ashbourne Hotel for a socially distanced coffee in the courtyard.
Let us hope that we can all get together again next year.
