LETTER Reuniting old colleagues

I have no doubt that many of your readers will remember National Service.

Along with many thousands of others, I was called to do mine in the RAF.

In the early 1950s It came as a bit of a shock. Obviously many friends were made during my two years, most of whom I’ve not seen since.

Many ex-airmen and women might be interested to know that The National Service (RAF) Association, which was formed some eleven years ago has had some success in reuniting old colleagues.

In addition, it has groups meeting regularly in various parts of the country, making visits to places of interest and enjoying other occasions.

The Association is also represented at various official functions throughout the year.

Anyone joining receives a quarterly magazine in which members can relate stories good or bad of their time in the service, along with a regularly updated membership list.

The association has recently been open to all ex-RAF men and women whether National Service or Regular.

Anyone interested can get more information from our web site at www.nsraf.org or by contacting me: at the following address :
