Welcome To Warboys Pathfinder Reunion Website

Every year in May there is a reunion held at Warboys Church and Village Hall remembering those that served in the RAF squadrons surrounding the area and the Pathfinder Force during World War II.

The very first reunion took place in May 1984 and was organised by Mr Edgar 'Taff' Jones a Leading Aircraftsman based at Warboys, Cambridgeshire. The idea for that reunion came when he organised the commission and unveiling of a plaque in Warboys Church that commemorated the aircrew and members of 156 Squadron. It was supposed to be just a 'one-off'!

At the height of success Taff saw over 300 people attend this annual event, a far cry from the few that were able to make it to the very first. Since passing away his daughter, Bronwen Wilkin and her family help out with the organisation. In 2008 we reached the 25th year and there are no plans to stop!

With the recent addition of the Lancaster flying display over the last few years and to celebrate the success of these reunions, the idea of having a website was born.

However, as the photographs became so numerous, it has become very difficult to update this website. So, we have decided to move it all onto Facebook.

The Facebook website is far easier for us to manage and has a major advantage of displaying the photographs larger and in a much more intuitive way. By the nature of Facebook, it allows the website to become far more sociable than we could ever achieve here.

You do not have to be a member of Facebook in order to view the page, but it is awkward to navigate if you are not. It is easy and straight-forward and free to join - you just need an email address. Please join us, and maybe submit your own photographs and stories, in fact any material you want.

Simply click on this link and you will be taken automatically to the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/warboyspathfinderreunion

If you don't want to join Facebook, but want to enjoy looking at the photographs that have been submitted to the website and Facebook page, then we will put copies up on Flickr. Simply click on this link and you will be taken the Flickr page: www.flickr.com/photos/warboys_pathfinder_reunion
