Guernsey's Own

It's the name of a squadron.

The aim of the Association Newsletter is to help members and ex-members of No 201 "Guernsey's Own" Squadron, the Royal Air Force's finest maritime squadron, to keep in contact with old friends and comrades. The Newsletter articles and photos provide a personal insight into the history of one of the Royal Air Forces oldest squadrons.


201 (Guernsey's Own) Squadron RAF Museum
Guernsey Museums & Galleries' latest development was opened by Her Majesty the Queen, on 12 July 2001.
Located in a building within Castle Cornet, the museum tells the story of 201 Squadron and its personnel, from First World War origins in No. 1 Squadron, Royal Naval Air Service, to the modern multi-role unit based at RAF Kinloss. The museum is essentially an updated version of an earlier facility which closed in 1996, when its previous location within the castle was redeveloped as a shop. The intervening years have been put to good use in planning the new museum, with many additional items and images on display, together with extensive use of new media and technology. The design of the museum takes its inspiration from the interior of a Sunderland flying boat (mainstay of the squadron's operations for many years) and gives an interesting and unique ambience to the displays.

Hope it helps
