Fleet Air Arm Centenary

bubblyrat

Midshipman
As I have already mentioned in a reply on this site , I was in the Royal Guard for HRH Prince Philip at Yeovilton in 1964 , that occasion being the 50th Anniversary of the FAA , the RNAS having been formed in 1914. Ergo ,next year must surely be regarded as the Centenary of the FAA ?? However ,I have been unable to elicit any information from anyone regarding this auspicious anniversary. I really enjoyed the Garden Party at Buckingham Palace in 2009 , and would love to go again , or at least be invited to Yeovilton along with other 1964 "survivors " !!

I was there

The Fleet Air Arm celebrated two centenaries while I was serving - 50th Yeovilton and 75 Daedalus.
I have researched into the formation of the Fleet Air Arm (formerly Royal Naval Air Service).

The Fleet Air Arm celebrates its 100th birthday on 1st July 2014 - I am endeavouring to find out what the Royal Navy is going to organise.

I am an Associate member of RNAS Yeovilton and so far I have drawn a blank.

It will be too embarrassing with only a few helicopters and the historic flight. Maybe we should get a few F35s painted in RN colours for a fly past? Fly Navy 100 wasn't that good, however the wadworths 6x with Pussers was nice!

Standby to see how the 100 year experiment do it in 2018.

To be fair to WALHEN, HM The Boss dished out gongs marking the 25th, 50th & 60th anniversary of the coronation (OK, not centenary), so anything goes as long as there is a mainbrace spliced, in my book.

Burp, Cheers.
