Mail Strike! What mail strike?

Update on Re-Union Bookings so far!

WOW! In one word. Thanks to all who have responded with dinner or dinner and HOTAC bookings already. The tickets will be on their way next week.
To those of you who are thinking about it-let me just repeat my previous note about rooms-better you book now than wait only to find 'we ain't got any left'.

Re Union

Hi everyone-members and visitors. Firstly, as you will have worked out, the picture is that of a Britannia not a 44! As a member of the Britannia Preservation team at Kemble, my job is to arrange group visits to the aircraft which is now gleaming in its former RAF Transport Command livery complete with its original reg of XM496 'Regulus'.Hopefully, the next Newsletter will contain more details of such a visit for us during which a former RAF Britannia Pilot will be on hand to show you around the flight deck.
Thanks to the many of you who have returned your re-union booking forms-do please remember that overnight 'HOTAC' is limited, so the earlier you return your booking form-the better.

Cheers all

Association Update

To All CL44 Association members.
The November Newsletter is now complete and will be mailed to you all together with the 2010 Re-Union Booking Form, during the next week or so. DO please remember though, that a UK National Postal Strike may affect its prompt delivery.

One of our newest members has embarked upon writing the story of Jack Conroy. Anyone able to assist in this, please do get in touch with me and I will supply further details.

Best regards to all and I DO hope to see you in the RAF CLub on the 22nd May.
