REUNION DINNER - CANX - 29 May 2020
2 June 2020 - Many will be aware that, thanks to the Coronavirus business, the planned Annual Reunion Dinner had to be cancelled for Friday 29 May 2020.
A note from Sandy Butler (the organiser of the planned event) was received a few days later. - It reads:
" Hello All,
As you know, our 10 Sqn Association Reunion 2020 was planned to be held on 29 May but was cancelled owing to the Covid-19 lockdown.
I placed a message on Facebook – ‘10 Squadron VC10’, suggesting that because of the cancellation, we might all with glass in hand, go to our front/back doors and toast the Association/10 Squadron Past & Present/Absent Friends on 29 May.
This almost went viral: - 40 plus said they would be honoured to raise their glasses at 1900hrs last Friday evening.
I also emailed members who are not on Facebook and had a very good response.
With fingers crossed we will all meet up next year for a Reunion of the 10 Squadron Association.
Keep Safe & Well, - Sandy Butler "
A message was received from Member Doug Newham aged 98, the day afterwards says:
" At 1900hrs on 29 May 2020, and with my family members at a distance, I too raised my glass toasting,
”To 10 Squadron... to all who served, and to all of those who gave their lives. - To Shiny Ten.”
