Len Hagon

It is with great sadness that we have to report that Len Hagon passed away on Saturday 8th October 2008.  He had been ill for many months hence the absence from recent events.  Len and Norma always looked forward to the annual reunions.   Norma would like to wish the squadron every success in the future.    Len is to be buried Thursday 20th November at 2.30 in the local village church. The family are donating half the money raised to the RAF Benevolent Fund.
