6 Squadron - The Tin-opener

6 Squadron Hurricane IId at Shandur

The first edition of the Tin-opener was written in 1944 and distributed to serving members of 6 Squadron as well as members of the 6 Squadron Association. The current edition of the quarterly squadron journal (for July 2019) is Number 112. 

Here is an extract:


"If anyone on 6 Squadron was expecting a bit of respite after Ex RED FLAG in January and February they would have been sorely disappointed! Fortunately, we all know better than that and were ready for what has been a busy spring period for the Squadron.

On return to the UK after what was an excellent Exercise in the US the Squadron was quick to return to day to day flying and look towards the next Exercise. The next adventure was a trip for the majority of the Squadron to Sweden to take part in Ex ARCTIC CHALLENGE 19, a large scale exercise featuring a number of European allies as well as the US in the enormous training areas of Sweden and Finland."
