Silver Vaults visit is a job well done.

The planned visit on Thursday 29th January to the Silver Vaults in Chancery Lane by the Association Committee to select an appropriate piece of silverware to commemorate the Squadron’s Centenary turned out to be a complete success. Long term planning that started some 10 years ago to put aside £100 each year has paid off.

We selected a Sterling Silver trophy cup, having a plain round body with a shaped rim, two scroll side handles, with applied reeded borders, and sitting on a round pedestal foot looked perfect and a fitting item. It was made by the Fattorini & Sons of Sheffield in 1922, almost as old as the Squadron.

No pictures are being posted at the moment until the engraving is complete and the piece can be seen in its final splendour.
