7 Squadron Association is Affiliated with the Bomber Command Association Registered Charity No 292469 

Welcome to all who are serving or have served on

The Association provides all members and ex-members of 7 Squadron, along with relatives or friends, with the opportunity of  joining the Association. 

Our aims are to maintain a link between current and former Squadron Members regardless of rank or status, to retain the Squadron spirit of pride and cameraderie enjoyed during Squadron Service and to perpetuate the memory of those Squadron members who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country whilst serving on the Squadron.  We also provide an archive service for persons seeking information on WWII Squadron Aircrew personnel.

Members benefit from the opportunity to join-in with an annual reunion,  a remembrance service at Longstanton Parish church (the Station Church of RAF Oakington) and to participate in the Annual National Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph in London.  We issue an Annual full-colour Newsletter every spring.
