Montrose Air Station will be turning back the clocks for a nostalgic trip back to the heyday of the RFC and RAF in the town.

On Saturday, September 27 Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre are holding a dance and buffet in the Montrose Royal British Legion function room to celebrate the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Air Force at Montrose.

Dancing will be to a selection of music from the decades and guests are encouraged to dress in styles reflecting the period.

The evening will feature music from Kirsten Tomlinson of Songbook Melodies, and some performers from the Esk Academy of Dancing will also be in action.

There will also be refreshments in the form of a finger buffet.

Montrose aerodrome goes back to the very early days of aviation when number two squadron of the RFC arrived in February 1913.

Throughout most of its life Montrose was concerned with the training of pilots, although during World War Two Spitfire squadrons were on station for airfield and coastal protection.

RAF Montrose closed in June 1950.

Tickets are £10 and now available and can be purchased from the Van Werninck Studio, Murray Street or by ‘phoning 01674 673282.
