50th Anniversary Reunion - 28th April 2016


Harry Goodwill, Pete Mallinson, Ian (Stowie) Stow and Steve Ellis
met up at Cosford, to commemorate the 50th Anniversary, of the formation
of the 306th Entry on 28th April 1966.


This Memorial Plaque is dedicated to all the Boy Entrants and Apprentices,
who passed through the doors of the mighty Fulton Block, between 1938 and 1989.
