Thank you for visiting the No.218 (Gold Coast) Squadron Association Blog.

If you read this blog or have an interest in No.218 (Gold Coast) Squadron, or have a story about a relative who flew with the squadron, please contact me. I am always happy to try and answer questions on the squadrons activities, but please remember, this can take time. I am always delighted to receive information or photographs on the squadron and its crews, it all adds to the squadron history. The stories of these brave lads needs to be told and recorded before they are lost forever, it is our duty to preserve their memory. From the help I have received over the years, I am delighted to announce that the squadron book “St Vith to Victory”  is now available from Pen & Sword.
