Here is a photo of our two Joint Honorary Presidents, Committee and Guests at the January Bordeaux luncheon.  Our Honorary Presidents, Henri (seated)  and Emile (2nd from left) celebrated their 100th and 97th birthdays in 2018!

The Sud-Ouest Branch Annual General Meeting was held on Friday 9 February 2018 in Bordeaux-Talence when we were delighted to welcome our Guest of Honour, the USAF Air Attaché.  Twenty three members attended and enjoyed a good lunch afterwards!  Please email rafa.sud-ouest@gmx.com if you would like to see the AGM papers.

In the summer of 2018 we held a Hog Roast with the help of the Walters Family. We raised €1,000 to fund our welfare work supporting members of the RAF Family in SW France.  We held the Schneider Trophy Air Race (thank you Steve), guessed the number of sweeties in Sophie's jar and had a raffle.  So, a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who helped with the event and to all our members and guests who attended.  We could not it all without your support.
