Veterans of RAF 100 Group

On Saturday the 13th May the village of Oulton once again proudly welcomed back the veterans of RAF 100 Group and their families.

The usual afternoon tea and cakes were presented, followed by a short ceremony at the memorial. In addition, this year they were joined by current serving members of the USAF and RAF, standing proudly side by side at Oulton as they did 73 years before.Whilst ill health keep a few of ‘our’ veterans away, four did make it – including, for the first time, one from the USA.

Despite the passage of time, RAF Oulton remains an important site and place for families and historians to visit and the village is keen to welcome them always. The afternoon concluded with a fly past by a vintage aircraft that proved an emotional finale for many.

We will remember them!
