If there is any RAAF guys interested in starting a new group on East coast of the US e-mail me!
I was thinking 93 Squadron (Pacific) or 451 or 454 Mediterian! You suggestions ideas welcome!

I'd be interested but all I've got of RAAF is a BD just received from Chris. I'll have to start working on obtaining a KD.

I have some RAAF kit spare, including two WAAAF tunics, a KD tunic (long not short) and a couple of post-war BD's that may be converted.

Let me know if interested.

.....but....I'm in Florida. Where would most of the get together's take place? I have never been involved in a re-enactor's group, so I would need pointers to start off! The only kit I have are Flight helmets, oxy masks, goggles and gauntlets, but would be intertested in purchasing some repro-wear and 'gear up'!

Kindly let me know and keep me informed!
Best regards,
Glenn

Depending on interest, could do some of the established shows:

Reading, PA in June or New event in Niagara Canada
Geneseo Airshow - July in upper state NY
Airshow in So Carolina in early Nov?
Eisenhower Farm in early Oct
The Gap event Indiantown Gap Pa in late January

I'm leaning towards summer events more
Am open to suggestions also Squadron
