RAF Upper Heyford "Come One, Come All" Reunion - August 2006
The 12 Aug 06 reunion at RAF Upper Heyford was a great success. We had over 200 attendees and the weather didn't slow any activities down. We had about 350 people who said they would attend but due to various reasons about 150 couldn't make it but everyone still had a great time. We had one fellow show up who lives in Taiwan and the fellow who was stationed there the earliest was from 1952 (Thomas C. Peltier, The Alumni Award, 1952-53 with the 301st FMS). I'll send along the name of The Travel Award winner and details later. Right now I just want to send along some photos taken by folks who sent them to me and thought I would pass them along for posting as you see fit. There are quite a few so use what you want and discard the rest. FYI GMS Enterprises of Petersburg prints a publication called Air Focus with a different booklet on many of the bases around England. RAF Upper Heyford is #43 and Graham Simon, editor and publisher, visited the base and updated #43 with the latest information and photos about the base and its future. If interested Graham can be contacted at gmsimons@btconnect.com. Graham is a great guy and was very active in the preservation of Duxford air field.

"The Base was equipped with anti-aircraft guns against attack from the air, but on the 18th and 19th May 1952 a mock attack of the Base was planned to test ground defences. Most of the 150 British Army parachute troops landed in a field north of Brook Farm. The others dressed up as firemen, and drove two fire engines through the front gates of the Base, which the Americans obligingly opened for them. Headquarters and the Base Commander were captured very quickly!"

First RAF Upper Heyford 3918th Reunion at Branson, Missouri. October 2004
First RAF Upper Heyford 3918th Reunion at Branson, Missouri. October 9, 2004.

This reunion was in the searching and planning for about 10 years. Everyone who attended, had a great time. We hope to have another reunion in two years, place not yet decided. We hope that more old Heyfordites will attend the next one, once they find out how much fun the first one was. We had a couple of officers at this reunion and they would like to combine with us for the next one. We would be open to any years that wanted to join us.

Submitted by Jim Seymour, Heyford 60-63.

20th AMS Reunion, October 1999

"The reunion started small because a group of about 9 people in the 20th Avionics Maintenance Squadron (including the First Shirt and the Commander) used to be called the "Out to Lunch Bunch" - our slogan was "When the going gets tough, we sit down and eat." We searched the web - did not have your wonderful site - for a while and invited everyone we could find to John Field's house in Las Vegas. We found about one hundred and had about 45 people show up. I hope I didn't miss anyone."

"We were all in one part or another of AMS during the 1970s."
Submitted by "Sparky" Kincaid (now Allen), 20th AMS.
