1921 (Lewisham) Squadron was founded on 2 June 1942, in response to the need for aviation-minded young men to serve the war effort and the Battle of Britain. At the time, Lewisham had six Squadrons, and hundreds of cadets â€“ who were sent to the front line and in to support trades as soon as they were old enough. Over sixty years later, the Squadron is the only surviving unit in Lewisham: now focused on developing opportunities for young people, rather than deployment.
To celebrate the Squadronâ€™s birthday, cadets and staff met up for a nightâ€™s bowling â€“ an informal chance to socialise, and watch the two Warrant Officers deploying their expertise in the staff bowling lane. An enjoyable evening was had by all, with what was lacking in skill often replaced by huge amounts of effort!
Happy Birthday, too, to FS Nixon, who did not turn 67!
