OUR "DYNAMIC DUOS"

  (1957-61)  

WE WERE THERE
(An Ode to our "Dynamic Duos)
(Tune: Over There)
(Lyrics by Bob Gillet)
 
We were there, we were there
When the Clunk wasn't junk
We were there
The Orendas humming 
The Russians coming
And there was panic everywhere
In the air, we were there
We were "two to a crew"
What a pair
Now it's over
We're out to clover
But we won't forget
We were lucky
We were there.
 
 
NOTE:  It was unfortunately not possible to obtain crew photos of all the members who flew with the squadron.  Our thanks to those members who were contacted and able to contribute to this collection.  Any photos subsequently received will of course be added to this webpage.  For those of you who have been unable to attend reunions and such, some recent pics of a few of the members have been included.

"To the Batmobile Robin.
A lot of memories here.
These guys are worth
visiting".
