40th Gala Dinner – Update

If you’ve registered for the Harrier 40th Anniversary Dinner you’ll probably already have received this, from 20(R) Sqn at Wittering:

To date, over 350 personnel have signed up to attend the Gala Dinner; we have been pleasantly surprised that those who have registered to date represent all decades of the Harrier’s history from development through to those on the current Force. Dress for the evening will be ‘Black Tie’, the menu for the evening has been chosen, and is attached for your perusal. If you have any specific dietary requirements, please let me know. Pre-dinner drinks and wine (½ Bottle/person) will be provided as part of the meal; additional refreshments will be available until midnight from a cash bar. Many have enquired of the possibility of inviting spouses to the event; whilst we acknowledge that they are often as much a part of the Force, serving capacity has limited our overall numbers to 500 maximum. Regrettably therefore, the event is still presently limited to those who have served directly on or in support of the Force. Notwithstanding, if nearer the date, space remains available, we may be able to offer places to spouses – we will keep you informed. Otherwise, some interested spouses are planning informal get-togethers in Stamford that evening. A list of hotels has been attached for your booking convenience; please let me know via email which you do book for transport reasons. We aim to have coaches picking up from these locations and with RAF Cottesmore. We would encourage you to make use of this facility if possible to minimise delay getting on base and as car parking space is limited. Entrance to the event will be on a ticket-only basis; tickets and Photo ID will be required at Wittering Guardroom, for those who are driving, and by RAF Police on the coaches. To ease our checking individual’s details for security purposes, please could you ensure I have your (former) Service Number? The date for last registration is 23rd June; please send the word to friends before they are too late. Following list closure we will let you know of the finalized ticket price together with payment details; upon receipt of payment we will despatch entrance tickets.
