THORNEY ISLAND REMEMBRANCE CEREMONY 

415 Squadron  Association

For many years the Association has wondered whether or not a remembrance ceremony of any type was or is held near or at the former RAF Station Thorney Island.  There are no records amongst the Squadron artefacts, which would indicate that an annual ceremony occurs.  Indeed to date, no member of the Alumni has come forward with any related information concerning this query.  Recently the Association was pleased to learn that a member of the RCAF, LCol Shawn Williamson, had contacted the Commanding Officer 415 Squadron to advise him that he had attended a remembrance ceremony at Thorney Island.  Shawn reported that whilst there he had seen a number of Swordfish graves at the Saint Nicholas Parish Cemetery.   The Association contacted Shawn to learn more about the ceremony.
