Hoot And Roar: 100 Years Of 84 Squadron

Marking 100 years of 84 Squadron, the only Royal Air Force Squadron to be permanently based overseas, Jess Bracey takes you on a century-long journey with the last remaining search and rescue Squadron.

From the Western Front to India, Libya, Iraq, Burma and their home in Cyprus we speak to crew past and present in this Forces Radio BFBS Original Programme.

We unveil the heroic plight of one pilot who received the Victoria Cross, hear the tale of the crew who made it to Fraser Island in Australia by boat and find out why a pair of bloomers takes pride of place in the Squadron archive corridor.

In recent times the Squadron's role has changed working with Operation Shader and has also seen its efforts noted by the Prime Ministers of Cyprus and the UK.
