Silver City Association grew out of the annual Silver City
reunions that were held at Gatwick or in that area from 1977
onwards. In 1987, Keith Dagwell was asked to take over the
organisation of that event - a task that he has performed
ever since - and he developed it into the Silver City Association
that exists today.
Association aims to keep alive the spirit of Silver City that
was so evident during the company's halcyon days and has a
membership of over 200 ex-Silver City employees and others
involved with the Air Ferry, together with a growing band
of Silver City enthusiasts. There is an Annual Reunion at
Ferryfield (now London Ashford Airport) which is regularly
attended by about 100 'Citizens'; those who cannot attend
keep in touch through the Association's newsletter.
Association also holds what is probably the most comprehensive
collection of original documents, photographs and Silver City
memorabilia in the world. Most of this is currently housed
at Solent Sky - the Southampton Museum of Aviation.
Membership is restricted to ex-Silver City employees but
Associate Membership is open to anyone who has an interest
in the Silver City story and involves a one-off payment
of just £10. Go to the Membership
