These are big affairs. A show on down at the airfield. You can stay overnight in the blocks, eat from the messes, march down and up the hill and wander the camp (remember how we used to spend money to take every opportunity to NOT do those things . . .). Now that we are older (mid forties) and supposedly wiser, these things are (perhaps) once again OK to do? :-)
They are also good opportunities for entries to organise a reunion. We 139s have never had a reunion (so far as I can tell) and the topic does crop up. We missed 20 and 25 years (can you believe it's been that long?), so maybe it's a 30 year thing for us?
Mark your diaries for Sat 25 September 2010 for the official Appo reunion at Halton..
