Mascot of 16 Squadron (RAF)

Hello Ratfans! Until recently, I was used as the lucky mascot for 16 Squadron based at RAF Coltishall.

I was adopted by the Squadron in the 1980s, and carried out many years of lucky mascot duties before the Squadron was disbanded in 2005. Since then I have been donated to the Museum for a well-earned retirement!
