No. 77 SQUADRON
ASSOCIATION INC

No. 77 Squadron Association story began on ANZAC Day 1953 in Sydney. The association flourished thanks to the drive of the president, Alwyn Quoy. In 1971 an offshoot of the original association was established as the "Kitty Hawk Squadrons Association".However, in 1976 the "Kitty Hawk Squadrons Association" became the "NSW Fighter Squadrons Branch" as part of the NSW Division of the RAAF Association (RAAFA). When this occurred, 77 Squadron Association remained in being.

In March 1992 the association received a new lease of life when the Freedom of the City Of Perth was conferred on the occasion of the squadron's 50th anniversary. The significance of the event related to the fact that 77 Squadron had formed in Perth during WW2 at the height of the Japanese drive towards Australia.

Since this period a "new look" 77 Squadron Association has been going from strength to strength.Every year association members march in the Sydney ANZAC Day parade as a separate group but as part of the Fighter Squadrons contingent.

The association has received positive support from successive 77 Sqn commanding officers and also from the 77 Members at large.
