Almost 60 years after it was disbanded, the historic Royal Auxiliary Air Force (RAAF) Squadron is being re-launched in Cardiff.

The 614 (Glamorgan) Squadron was formed in the capital on 1 June 1937.

It was reformed in March this year becoming the only RAF operational Reserves Squadron in Wales.

Its new headquarters at Ty Llewellyn in Cardiff is to be officially opened on Wednesday 25 June by the Secretary of State for Wales David Jones MP.

He will unveil a plaque carved in Welsh slate from the Cwt-Y-Bugail quarry in Blaenau Ffestiniog, Gwynedd to commemorate the event.
