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 2022) is Number 124. Here is an extract:


"Three pilots enjoyed the privilege of being selected for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Flypast. Our illustrious OC A Flt was delighted to relive his Red Arrows career by leading the ‘Seven’. The flypast achieved plenty of highly positive coverage in the national media and proved to be a fitting tribute to Her Majesty’s 70th year on the throne – congratulations from 6 Sqn! "
