VIII Squadron Association

No. 8 Squadron Association was formed to perpetuate the comradeship and spirit that has always existed on our Squadron.  Anyone who has served or is serving with the Squadron, in whatever rank, is eligible to join the Association.

The Association is administered by a committee whose members are as follows:

OC 8 Squadron:
Squadron Liaison:
Air Marshal G A Robertson CBE BA FRSA RAF (Retd)
Mr Tim Almond
Wing Commander Steve Kilvington MA BSc(Hons) RAF
Mr Nick Byatt
Mr Martin Kidson
Flight Lieutenant A Brown RAF

The Association publishes a Newsletter on a regular basis (currently twice a year) and organises the reunions (usually early May).  HM Treasury rules dictate that we are to be self-financing and therefore the Committee has set up an initial membership fee of £10:00.  This covers both the cost of joining and membership for the first year.  Thereafter, annual subscriptions are £5:00, collected by standing order on 8th February.  Subscriptions cover the production of the Newsletter and general administration charges, and are also used to defray expenses at the reunion.  In previous years, No 8 Squadron has contributed to the costs of the weekend.  An application form to join the Association can be found using the link under the Squadron crest on this page.  Please complete the application form, the Secretary will receive a copy when submitted.

New Association Members Welcomed

If you are a former member of 8 Squadron (aircrew, ground crew and all aircraft types), you are most welcome to join the Association.  As we look forward to the Squadron's centenary in 2015, we have set a target membership of 888.  We need your help in reaching this target, and we should be very grateful if you would encourage your former 8 Squadron colleagues to join the Association too, so that we can mark our Centenary in style.  In the first instance, please email No. 8 Squadron using the link above.  All information held on Association members is subject to the Data Protection Act, 1984.

If you are already a member of the Association and you have not already done so, it would be appreciated if you would also complete the form so that we can update our database.  Please tick the box at the bottom to indicate you are an existing member.  This page can also be used to amend your contact details should these change in the future.
