Three cheers for 11 Squadron and the last surviving man from the Catalina boat squadrons......

This is just a short story but a heartwarming story that I felt deserved its own post....

Yesterday in Adelaide a lovely story played out of respect for our elderly veterans by their younger counterparts.   This elderly veteran in the wheelchair the last surviving man from the Catalina boat squadrons.

Rather than have him march alone, 11 squadron (the new cats, with Felix the cat as their mascot) marched behind him, rather than at the back with serving members.
The old gentleman was absolutely delighted.

BZ 11 Squadron!  Respect. 

Till next time... never forget, these are the real Aussie Heroes!

Till next time... keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
