The Portsmouth Aircrew Association & Friends is not just a club for former aircrew. The national Aircrew Association existed until its cessation in 2011. Since then local independent Associations have welcomed many non-aircrew members and civilians alike. Whilst we maintain a core membership of both wartime and cold war aircrew, our present membership contains people from all walks of life, and even boasts a former RN submariner!
Meetings are on the 2nd Monday of each month at the Royal British Legion, Hayling Island, at 11 am and we always include a very interesting speaker. On Monday 8th January Bob France will give an illustrated talk on ‘Uppark and its people’ and on Monday12th February Phil Nelson recounts the intricacies of ‘Aerial Surveillance’. These Branch meetings are supplemented with an active social life featuring monthly lunches, a summer outing and a lively Christmas party.
Full membership is only £5 pa, (no charge for a taster visit), and new ‘Friends’ are always made very welcome; so give us a visit. Further details from Keith Watson on 023 9247 5961.
