Members of staff and civilian committee members from 121 ( Nuneaton ) Squadron recently attended the annual Warwickshire and Birmingham Wing dinner and dance at The Village Hotel Coventry.

This year the staff from 121 Squadron made a grand entrance to the dance when they arrived champagne glasses in hand at the venue in their stretched limousine. If there were a prize for turning up in style we would have certainly clinched it this time. It was definitely a step up from the minibus as a mode of Squadron transport.

The guest of honour this year was the former Wing Administration Officer Sqn Ldr John Phillips who retired from his post earlier in the year. He was presented with an engraved silver rose bowl from the Wing and a plaque from the Mess; in turn he presented a propeller clock to the Wing to be displayed at Warwickshire & Birmingham Wing Headquarters.

During the formal after dinner speeches the Wing President, Air Commodore Duncan Mitchell made several presentations one of which went to Flt Lt Ian Crewe Officer Commanding 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron who received Regional Commandant's Commendation for services to the Air Training Corps.

The evening itself was a great success an opportunity for the Squadrons staff and committee to get together socially and enjoy a night out together. Having left the function the staff from 121 continued to enjoy themselves as they journeyed home in the luxurious splendour of the Squadron limousine. The only disappointment came when the Squadron's civilian committee chairman turned down the request to replace the unit's minibus with a new limo. After such an excellent evening all that remains is for us to plan an even more spectacular mode of transport for next year.
