Some of you are lucky to be
reading this! The
subscription reminder in the last Newsletter jogged a lot of memories
but there are still a few of you out there who have not renewed. See
We are priveleged to have a unique article in this issue,
kindly written by John Farley. This is the first time the history of
the VAAC Harrier and its work has been published.
We also have Duncan
Simpson's story of the first Harrier delivery and John Crampton's
fascinating reminiscences of Sir Thomas Sopwith. Otherwise, it's "all
my own work"! How about a few more pieces about your time with Hawkers
for the next Newsletter?
Christmas is fast approaching so give yourselves a couple of treats.
Firstly the Association Christmas Lunch on December 14. Tickets are
just £15. Call Percy Collino on 020 8337 8143 then send him a
payable to The Hawker Association. Secondly, an Association tie or two.
