RAF Museum News
    David Hassard has determined that the RAF Museum at Hendon holds what appears to be the complete collection of Hawker photographs up to when the Richmond Road factory closed, as well as many Sopwith glass plate negatives. They are all stored in correct conservation conditions but are not catalogued.
    David is working with Peter Elliot and Andy Renwick of the RAFM with a view to seeing if, and in what way, Association Members can help with this task. Once the needs and procedures are determined we will be looking for volunteers. If anyone understands the identification codes used on photographs this information would be valuable right now. Please call David on 020 85462715. 
Christmas Lunch

    Another excellent traditional Christmas lunch was enjoyed by 44 Members at the Hawker Centre on 9 December. Our thanks to Ken Batstone for organising this most festive of social of events, including the raffle, and to the YMCA management and staff who set up the dining room, prepared and served the food, and donated a number of bottles.
