Traditions


#1

I’m interested to find out about traditions across the county.

Does your sqn/wing have any traditions and how long have these been in place for?


#2

The RAF (and by extension the air cadets) haven’t been around for long enough to have traditions, just habits.


#3

True, but i’m talking more about very local things such as certain “rituals” when people leave or harmless ‘habits’ that happen regularly


#4

The RAF has been around 100 years. That is plenty of time to form traditions.


#5

Pah, you need a good 300 years at least, 400 to be safe.

Soon a couple of the Guards regiments will be able to claim they have traditions!


#6

No it’s not. You sprogs.

The RAF gob off about far too much as it is.


#7

They should get some time in.


#8

Do traditions which some may refer to as “we’ve always done it like that”, hold things back from developing?
