It has been three years since we have been able to get together in person for our traditional Christmas dinner and awards ceremony. So the attendance of about 50 members at this year's event held on 3rd December at the Spa Hotel was an expression of relief and confidence as well as the strong fellowship or our Society.
Our thanks especially to Brig. Gen. Rory O'Connor GOC Air Corps, who was our guest speaker on the night.
