A hangar cocktail party celebrated 38 Squadron’s 74th birthday on Friday 15SEP17.

Squadron members and partners were treated to 10 courses of canape’s and fantastic music provided by members of 1RAR band.

The incoming OC86WG, GPCAPT Steve Pesce attended the evening catching up with Caribou aircrew WGCDR Mike Ward (CO), SQNLDR’s Matt Plenty (XO) and Ross Benson, FLTLT’s Dave Falk and Andrew Schostakowski and WOFF’s (Ret) Dave Gill and Craig Smith. The warries certainly flowed.

The formalities concluded with the cutting of the Squadron’s birthday cake by the youngest and wisest (ancient) member, PLTOFF Gemma Dorn and WOFF Dean Bastian.

A big thanks goes out to Jenny Sichter, Jasmin van Gorp, Dan Thomas and Dan Dare for making the night a great success.
