To date, approximately 150 badges have been completed..." [02AUG98]

UPDATE "...We held that in November 1998 - and since then have just held a second one in Malta, where 203 Sqn was based (Shackletons, then Nimrods) 1969 to 1978. We had an excellent turnout of 274 people - probably the largest ever UK single squadron Reunion held out of the UK..." [11JUL2002]
