617 Squadron Association - Membership
Membership of the Association is now open to all current and former members of 617 Squadron since its formation in 1943. At the 2012 AGM, the decision was taken to open the Association to membership by non-aircrew personnel that served on the Squadron nominal role for a period of at least 6 months. Evidence of Squadron Membership is required to support any application. If you wish to join the Association, please contact the Membership Secretary, Bill Williams, 1 Cuthbert Close, Quarrington, Sleaford, NG34 8WS.
The Association normally publishes two newsletters and holds two reunion weekends per year; the Dams Raid is commemorated on the weekend nearest the anniversary of the raid (16/17 May 1943), and the sinking of the Tirpitz is commemorated on Remembrance Weekend, which is generally the weekend nearest the anniversary of the final attack (12 November 1944).
