The Hawk Anecdotal History comprises notes compiled by the Chairman from the Letters from the Squadron for the periods 1994 - 2001 & 2003 - 2008, plus Neil Meadows and Jamie Hunter’s ’ presentations to the 2014 & 2015 Association Annual Reunion Dinners about their time in command of 208.

Neil Meadows continues the story of how 208 Squadron achieved a massive flying task, between 2001 and 2003, including a record number of sorties flown in one day, thus safeguarding the very future of the RAF by providing sufficient future combat pilots for the front-line requirement.

Thirdly, the Chairman summarises the Letters from the Squadron for the period 2003 - 2008, including the 90th Anniversary activities and the arrival of Indian Air Force (IAF) trainee pilots for fast-jet training at RAF Valley.
