Tayside Aircrew Association members held their monthly meeting at McDiarmid Park in Perth recently at which they helped padre Joe Ingram celebrate his 90th birthday.

The speaker for the day was member Archie Clark who gave a brief history of the early development of airborne meteorological reconnaissance followed by his Second World War experience on 251 Squadron in Iceland flying such missions.

This was followed by a film commemorating the lives of members of the UK and the Commonwealth who lost their lives while on active service with the squadron.

The association’s next meeting will be a ladies’ lunch on Thursday, April 24 also at McDiarmid Park.
