415 Squadron Association

WELCOME

                                                                                  27 January 2017 

Now in its 12th year of operation, the 415 Squadron Association continues to look for opportunities to showcase and supplement the history of the Swordfish squadron.  The Association is fortunate to have a large volunteer group that guides its efforts and the alumni continue to grow.  Further, I can report that a number of meaningful projects have recently been completed and new ones are underway.  

With the re-formation of the Squadron in 2015, the Association has endeavoured to work closely with the new cadre of Swordfish.  We have welcomed Squadron representation at Association meetings and we have worked together on a number of projects including the development and manning of the 75th Anniversary Display.  As we move ahead, the Association will endeavour to highlight Squadron activities and keep the alumni informed on matters of mutual interest that we hope will maintain Swordfish spirit and promote a sense of pride in the Squadron’s accomplishments. 

There is no doubt that communication is vital to the successful execution of the Association’s mandate.  Therefore, a significant amount of effort has been expended to keep our website current and relevant.  It would seem that our efforts are having positive results.  Over the past twelve months, we have had over 29,000 visitors to our site.  Many of those who have visited the site have asked for assistance in learning more about a relative who served on 415 Squadron.  Many others have provided details concerning the service record of a loved one or shared stories that have served to enhance and provide greater fidelity to the Squadron’s historical record. 

Of course we encourage all Swordfish to join our Association. Their participation and stories are important to us. While membership is restricted to those who have served on 415 Squadron, we do appreciate hearing from family and friends of former Squadron members.  We also invite visitors to this website to contact the Association should they have any questions or comments concerning the content of the site. 

In closing, I want to thank you for taking the time to view the site and learn more about 415 Squadron.  While you browse this website, please remember the many sacrifices made by the men and women who served our Nation as members of 415 Squadron.
