IV (R) Sqn Standup Details: RAF Valley 24 Nov 2011

From Al Luckins, 19(R) Sqn at RAF Valley:

I thought it prudent to send another update on where we stand with events for the day itself, plus some finer details for the dinner in the evening.

We’ve now had CAS’s official reply: he will be attending the day but not the evening meal.

Parade Although TBC, our current plan looks like this:
1300 – 1400 Guests assemble at 19 Sqn. Light refreshments available. Potential Flypast and static display. 1400 – 1530 Parade; standing down of 19 Sqn standard and concecration of IV Sqn standard. 1530 – 1700 Sqn Visit/refreshments/History Room etc 1700 – 1830 Time to change at accn and pre dinner drinks 1900 – Late Dinner

Dinner Things are still a little flexible, but the current plan has us at a maximum of 130 guests (a Mess limitation) and therefore planning for the evening to be ‘STAG’. With funding, which should be provided from the RAF, the dinner should be in the region of £35 per head. As far as accommodation is concerned, the mess have been unable to guarantee enough rooms to cover those attending, however we have block booked any spare rooms for that evening. However, it remains to be seen how many rooms will actually be available to the association. I’m therefore proposing that your association members book into a nearby hotel (links below). Transport to and from the mess for the day and during the evening will be provided by the station.

Initial response from 19 Sqn Assoc indicates their attendance to be about 20 people. I would be interested to know what potential numbers for IV Assoc might be? At the moment I am assuming that both associations will fill about 60 places.

As ever, if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me – it should be an excellent evening!

Yours Aye,


From Chris: This is shaping up to be an historic day for the Squadron. I hope we can help get the numbers up from 20 to 130, even though it’s a bit of a trip to RAF Valley! If you are planning to attend, please complete the form on the next page to book your place:
