Squadron Accoutrement


In a manuscript written by long-time Squadron Leader Brian Thynne after the war, he remarks that once Ned Grosvenor had created the simple, yet elegant flying sword logo that would symbolize 601 Squadron, that emblem began to appear on everything the Squadron touched.  This section of the website will present all things that we have been able to locate that were either decorated with the scarlet flying sword, or objects that provide a representation of ‘all things 601’.
