ASSOCIATION

INFORMATION AND NIGHTJAR

From it's foundation, the Association worked to promote the fellowship and traditions of No. 214 (FMS) Squadron Royal Air Force. Full membership was open to all those who had served with this unit and associate membership was available to family members and others with links to the Squadron. To keep all members in touch they published a newsletter called 'Nightjar' several times a year. Also an annual reunion was held and was always well attended by veterans and their families. The Association's aim was to preserve the memory of all those served with the Squadron throughout it's history. Over the last few years the number of members has dwindled and sadly the Association had to close. This website will hopefully continue to follow the good work of the Association.

All documents that the Association held have now been placed with the Heritage Aviation Museum at RAF Marham.
You can view these documents by appointment only.
To book please call the Curator on 07919-182990 (Tuesday or Thursday only please).
You can also email to : Marham.aviation.heritage@gmail.com

Email from an Association member :

With the reported closure of the 214 Squadron Association in the near future, I wish to acknowledge the wonderful work of Peter Walker, John Gulliver and all of the association committee members over the many many years of operation.

As a serving member of 214 Squadron, RAAF during WW11, it has been a pleasure to be kept in touch with the Association activities which has also facilitated contact with many old squadron members from those days.

At 96 years of age, I too feel the need to wind back some of my activities.

Please convey to all the squadron committee members my warmest wishes for the future and greetings for the coming festive season.
