very nice shots chris, not wanting to sound picky I am on the understanding that the RAF have dropped the ( R )/Reserve designation and are now known just as Squadron which for me personally is a good thing as I never did like that designation.MAR are now reporting Squadrons as thus

Ah I wasn’t aware of that! I’ve never liked it myself either. Is that for all (R) squadrons then?

As far as I am aware it is all the "Reserve" Squadrons but as for the 32(TR) Squadron I am not sure, but then that is a different ball game, but I have seen 4/29/45 as being reported as Squadron only now
