The Royal Air Force Astra Gazette newsreels were made by Pathé in the 1950s to be shown to serving RAF personnel in the RAFs very own Astra Cinemas that were housed on their air bases all over the world! The surviving editions start with the young Princess Elizabeth taking the place of her sickly father, King George VI at the graduation parade at RAF Cranwell way back in 1951. Most of the Astra Gazettes used a newsy format with short items featuring many young ladies in swim suits to keep the lads happy! But it is the Astra Gazettes insider round up of RAF news stories which afford such a fascinating insight into the RAF of the 1950s and include many of the key service personalities of the time such as Douglas Bader and Bob Stanford Tuck. By 1953, Pathé were filming all the items in full colour such as Ejector Seat Testing, a Sunderland flying boat rescue and the 1955 closure of the famous RAF Fighter Station at Biggin Hill. The reports end with RAF Waddington receiving The Freedom of the City of Lincoln with some stunning shots of the Vulcan in 1959. Film stars of the time also feature heavily including Peter Cushing, Jill Day, Jack Hawkins and Lee Patterson. These surviving Astra Gazettes are included here just as they would have been seen by the serving RAF personnel of the 1950s in the RAFs airbase Astra Cinemas that they are named after.
