  SOCIAL MEDIA - TWITTER & FACEBOOK

There are now Twitter and Facebook accounts which reflect the trend towards social media covering some aspects of 10 Squadron and the Association.

These are totally separate from the Association website and both are managed by non-ex-RAF members.

Any posts on these accounts by subscribers do not reflect any official views nor those held by the Association Committee. The posting of photographs there may also be subject to copyright issues which are outside the Association’s control. Classified information should never be posted on social media as this will incur security issues also outside the remit of the Association. A word of caution in using these aspects of social media is to be encouraged.

Nevertheless we welcome this move into the social media world and are grateful to those who are helping spread the word. Assistance in helping administer these facilities would be appreciated by those involved. Visit the sites to learn more.

For Twitter see: https://twitter.com/10Association

This may be viewed by all but non-subscribers to Twitter will be unable to interact.

For Facebook see: www.facebook.com/10SqnAssociation

Facebook subscribers are invited to ‘follow’ and ‘ like’ the page to enable a wider distribution.



 

LOOK HERE .......        HAVE YOU ONE OF THESE  ?

For further information and for a Card Application which may be made on-line, visit: www.defencediscountservice.co.uk  or by telephone 01509 - 233446

After filling in the Application Form via their website, proofs of ID and past service are required.  These may be Service Pension Payment Advice statements (with any private financial information suitably redacted), pages from your Record of Service, or other ID documents listed on their website.

Note:  Please do not contact the Association if you have any questions about the above: ask the Defence Discount Service direct.

THE INTERNATIONAL BOMBER COMMAND CENTRE

Planned to be built  in Lincoln, an appeal for which was launched in 2013, the Centre will be a fitting memorial to the men and women from 60 nations who served with Bomber Command between 1939 and 1945.

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.
