656 Squadron Talk Part 3 - The Lynx Era

The 656 Squadron Association will deliver a series of 4 talks detailing the history of the Squadron from the early days in India and Burma through Malaya, Hong Kong, Rhodesia, the Falklands, and Bosnia to the modern era in Afghanistan and Libya.

The squadron has the distinction of having more operational hours than any other squadron in the British Armed Forces and over the period it has existed has won 1 DSO, 49 DFC, 4 MC, 9 DFM and numerous Mentions in Dispatches. This is unique and the story is fascinating.

Talk 3 – The Lynx Era
In 1983 the Squadron moved to Netheravon and then to Dishforth. During this time, it was re-equipped with the Lynx AH1 replacing the venerable Scout. Many changes took place in this era with the Squadron kept busy on exercise and operations including deployment with IFOR to Bosnia.

A curry supper is also available from the Apache Cafe at 6pm - advance order only.

Spaces are limited so book soon to avoid disappointment.
