Among the guests of the 220 (St Albans) Squadron’s annual ceremonial dinner were two of the first cadets to join the squadron when it launched in 1941 at Verulam School.
The very special ‘Dining-In’ night took place at the Quality Hotel on London Road in St Albans to mark the 75 anniversary of the squadron.
Peter Woodard and Bob Lowe, the latter being the Squadron’s Honorary President and President of the St Albans Royal Air Forces Association, both still live in the City.
Commenting on the occasion, Officer Commanding, 220 (St Albans) Squadron, Flight Lieutenant Ben Wilkinson, said: “The annual Dining-In night is a formal opportunity for the Air Training Corps to celebrate its camaraderie, team spirit and achievements.
“This recognition of our 75 years in the city was an opportunity to reflect on all we have achieved over that time and the thousands of young St Albans people who have gained so much from their membership.
“We were delighted that two of our founding cadets were able to share the occasion with us.”
