The Great S V V S Picnic was much enjoyed by all who came along.
Once again it was a great success and we are indebted to the Mr. &
Mrs. V.E.O. for selecting such a superb venue and for making certain of
good weather which was quite perfect. We must also thank them for
arranging the event on the same day as the Redhill Air Show. Some great
displays of aerobatics were put on for our benefit. The B.B.M.F.
Spitfire and Hurricane paid a visit as did a Nimrod which I, and
probably most of us, had not seen flying before. After some 50 years it still looks very impressive.
I counted 30 S V V S cars displayed around the field and the picnic was
made comfortable by the shade provided by the large oak tree in the
corner of the field. Not only were there more S V V S cars in attendance
but most of their occupants lingered much longer than usual after the
