The Objective of the 367 Association is to provide a focal point for ex-members of 367 Wireless Unit - subsequently 367 Signals Unit - which operated from 1942 to 1962, latterly being based at RAF Little Sai Wan, Hong Kong. Contact with other related units is encouraged. The Association currently has 166 members, many of whom have established contact via this web-site.
The Association was inaugurated in October, 1993 and the first Reunion was held at The China Fleet Club in Saltash, Cornwall, U.K. in 1994
The Association's objectives will be met by holding at least one annual U.K. reunion for members, generally at, or close to a site having links with radio communications or the Royal Air Force. [As a result of the significant increase in membership, reunions now have to be held in locations with a hotel capable of accommodating 100+ - Ed. 2008]
In addition, group holiday visits or visits to relevant locations around the world may be arranged, subject to there being sufficient support from the Members.
Since 1993, visits and/or annual meetings have been held at the RAF Museum at Hendon, RAF Digby in Lincolnshire and Bletchley Park Museum. A visit to Hong Kong was made in January 1997 by a party of 31 members and partners.
At the 1999 Annual Meeting held at Bletchley Park Museum, it was agreed that 367 Association be affiliated to 3TU Association (Australia) and this was ratified at the 2000 Annual Meeting held in October at Eden Camp, near Malton in Yorkshire.
In 2001, the annual meeting - the eighth - was held at IWM Duxford in September 2001.
In 2002, the Reunion was held at The China Fleet Country Club, Saltash, Cornwall on 5th October , where the first ever reunion was held.
In 2007, a new venue had to be found capable of providing accommodation and interest for the increasing number of attendees. We took over the Falstaff Hotel in Leamington Spa for the largest attendance yet! There was plenty to do in the area.
In December 2007, a party of members and wives re-visited Hong Kong - see the report on the 'Jottings' page.
In 2008, we visited Leicester, staying at The Stage Hotel, with an opportunity to visit The National Space Centre.
In 2009, we re-visited Bletchley Park over the weekend of 16th/17th October. There have been many changes at BP, including the completion of the 'Colossus' re-build, and in March 2009, the 'firing-up' of a replica Turing Bombe
In 2010 we paid a return visit to the West Midlands area, staying at The Tillington Hall Hotel on the fringe of Stafford. On the Saturday, many of us went to the RAF Museum at Cosford, to see in particular, the Cold War Exhibition which had been completed since our last visit in 2005.
2011 saw the reunion in the Yorkshire town of Harrogate, on the weekend of 7 - 9 October 2011.
In 2012, we sited a Commemorative Bench in the FEAF section at the National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas, Staffs. This was dedicated to all members of 367 Signals Unit, Royal Air Force, and was conducted by our member - Rev Peter Varney. This event coincided with the 5th Anniversary of 'The Ride to The Wall', a major fund-raising assembly of 'bikers' to remember the 16,000 names of military personnel recorded on The Wall.
In 2013 we revisited The Tillington Hall hotel on the outskirts of Stafford, as we were unable to locate suitable accommodation in the intended location of Lincoln, so there was an opportunity to go to the RAF Museum at Cosford to see what was new, especially the recovered Dornier 17 being 'rehydrated'.
2014 saw our original plan to meet near Lincoln fulfilled, and visits were made to the Heritage Museum at RAF Scampton, and to the Sector Ops Museum at RAF Digby. At the AGM it was agreed to investigate using an outside organisation for future Reunions.
In 2015, our AGM and Reunion was organised on our behalf by Isle of Wight Tours, and was held just outside Swindon.
In 2016, we stayed at a hotel in Kegworth, near Nottingham, and had a very enjoyable weekend, organised again by Isle of Wight Tours.
In 2017, we revisited Eden Camp near Malton, staying just outside the City of York. Following a survey of the membership, this will be the penultimate AGM/Reunion, as the Association will be wound up in 2018, a year which marks the 100th Anniversary of the founding of the Royal Air Force, and the 25th Anniversary of the 367 Association.
