Satts meet Vets at 234 Sqn Reunion
The Servicemen Awaiting Trade Training (SATTs) had the opportunity to meet RAF Veterans at the 234 Squadron reunion at Halton House Officers’ Mess. The annual reunion allows former members and family of 234 Squadron to catch up and display model aircraft.
The SATTs were given the task of researching the history of the Squadron and presenting their findings to the veterans during the visit. One of the pilots they featured during the presentation was Bob Doe, a Pilot Officer during the Battle of Britain who later rose to the rank of Wing Commander. It came as a surprise to everyone that his daughter was in the audience, and was clearly touched by the mention of her father.
The SATTs then escorted the veterans around the Trenchard museum, trenches and airfield before having the opportunity to look around a Spitfire aircraft that was due to conduct a flypast at the Sunset Ceremony later in the evening for which the SATTs would form a Guard of Honour.
