OUR CHAIRMAN’S MESSAGE

 

A warm welcome to the 10 Squadron Association website.  The Association was created in 1984 with the aims of preserving the spirit and comradeship formed during service on the unit and a close relationship is maintained with the present day Squadron.  Membership is open to all who have served, or continue to serve, on 10  Squadron and also to relatives and friends of former Squadron members. 

Our membership includes those from the Whitley and Halifax days, through the Dakota, Canberra, Victor  and VC10 eras and now the new A330 Voyager.

 

Voy Trails

 

Based at RAF Brize Norton, as part of the AirTanker Hub, 10 Squadron operates the magnificent Voyager aircraft in the AT (Air Transport), AAR (Air-to-Air Refuelling) and VVIP roles and is co-located with the second unit to fly the type, No 101 Squadron.  The two squadrons employ a joint manning strategy on flying tasks, without losing a strong sense of individual unit identity.  This close relationship between the squadrons can be traced back to 1984 when 101 Squadron reformed at Brize Norton to fly VC10 tankers alongside 10 Squadron's VC10 transport aircraft.  Between 2005 and 2011, whilst 10 Squadron was disbanded, 101 Squadron was still operating the VC10 and the Association was privileged to be hosted by the unit during our annual visits to the station.

 

The Association organizes two main events during the year.  We hold a reunion at Brize Norton held each May, to promote a strong fellowship amongst our members. In November a Remembrance Day Service takes place at the 10 Squadron Memorial located near the entrance to the former RAF Melbourne in Yorkshire, where the Squadron was based in WW2.  The ceremony preserves the memory of the personnel who sacrificed their lives when serving on the Squadron.  All are welcome to attend.

 

10 Squadron was formed at Farnborough on 1 January 1915 and the comprehensive Centenary celebrations in 2015 included a parade at RAF Brize Norton on 30 January, during which HRH The Princess Royal presented the Squadron with a new Standard. 

 

Please browse through our website which is administered by Dick King, a former VC10 captain on the Squadron. As a potential Association member, the committee hopes you enjoy reading the information on this site.  After joining the Association, access to the Members' Area, where many past records and other items of interest await and will then be made available to you.

MESSAGE FOR OUR GMAIL MEMBERS

GMail subscribers - We Are Not Sending Spam Emails............

It appears that recent Mass Mailings sent by the Association to our Members who have Gmail addresses are being returned to us as 'Undeliverable'.  Research into this matter shows that Gmail is considering our Mass Mailings to be Spam.  Clearly this is not the case.

Whilst we suggest that Gmail addressee members should correct this matter via their Spam filters we are considering how we too may overcome this undesirable situation from our end.

Some time in the near future we are hoping to utilise a new system called Mailchimp, for the sending of mass mailings which will resolve this issue.

All aircrew are required to complete a personal log book which lists details of their flights.

These are the RAF Form 414 – Pilots Flying Log Book, and the RAF Form 1767 – Aircrew Flying Log Book for other aircrew categories.

 It is unusual, particularly after WW2 on a large-crewed aircraft, to find the whole crew listed for a particular flight.  Usually it is only the captain's name recorded in the "crew" column on the page.

Regrettably there is limited space available in the 'Spare' column on a log book’s page, and hence, often due to the modesty of the individual, it is rare to find specific reference to incidents that occurred during a particular flight.

  For example, we learn from an RFC communiqué, that on 26 October 1915, in combat, an injured 10 Squadron Observer somehow managed to move from the front cockpit of his spinning BE2c into the back in order to take control from his incapacitated pilot. He landed the aircraft and they both survived!  It would be interesting to find their log book entries for that particular flight!

 This section portrays some of the 10 Sqn History annals which may not have been recorded in Squadron members’ personal log books.  It also contains articles that just don't seem to fit in anywhere else.
