    Default Squadron Affiliation to a school

    During 1939, 35 Squadron affiliated with the City of Shrewsbury and with King Henry VIII School in Coventry.

    I have been working with the school to see if we can establish why the squadron affiliated with it but preliminary investigations have drawn a blank.

    Our initial thoughts were that one of the officers had links with the school but we are now thinking that maybe the school donated towards the purchase of part (or all) of an aircraft or there was some form of ATC link.

    Can anyone suggest any other options or provide information that may help solve this conundrum.

    Regards

    Pete

    Hi Pete, just a minor point - Shrewsbury is a town, not city!

    Cheers,

    Tom

    Thanks for the response; I merely quoted from the ORB's from the period ... not always a good idea I know.
