Many thanks to those friends visitors and contacts who have made favourable comments re my new sites. I am now running 3. RAF Elsham Wolds, 103 Sqn and 576 Sqn. I will be feeding in new material on all 3 sites for some weeks. This is stuff I already have on file. Mostly 103 Sqn but not all. This process will take some time as there is a lot of it and it will need sorting and editing etc but should be complete by the end of June. Maybe a bit later. I will then look at my databases and see if it is worth doing something with them. These are all huge files and that will need some thought. I am not even sure whether it is worth bothering as lists of data are not very interesting. 13th Feb 2017
RAF Elsham Wolds Website.
The RAF Elsham Wolds website mentioned below is now live and can be found here. 8th Feb 2017
RAF Elsham Wolds.
I am going to produce a separate site for RAF Elsham Wolds soon.
There is more than enough material on file to warrant one.
News of this will follow. 6th Feb 2017
Final posting of the year. I hope to try and convert this site to a responsive web design within the next 12 months. It seems to be the way to go these days. However that is rather a challenging project with a content heavy website. It will certainly take a lot of planning and I will need new software. Whether I have the time or motivation to do it or not is another matter. Time will tell. 13th Dec 2016
A Sincere Appreciation.
This week I took delivery of a most impressive collection of original photo prints relating to both 103 Squadron and 576 Squadron and also several log books and other ephemera. None of this I had seen before. These came from the family of one of my long time contacts, now sadly deceased, who has been collecting many years - well before me. The family wish to remain anonymous and I will of course respect their wishes. I do however wish to put on record my most sincere thanks for this wonderful donation to my archives. This collection is of great value and will be put to good use. The gentleman concerned passed away several months ago. I knew him well and we helped each other on numerous occasions over the years. He was a splendid chap and is sadly missed by many people. 2nd Dec 2016
576 Squadron Website.
Several of my contacts have expressed disappointment that their family 576 Squadron Profiles are no longer on line since I deleted my old 13 Base website. In view of this I have decided to set up a small separate 576 Squadron website with the old content relating to this squadron plus a few more items. I will add to this occasionally with items I already have on file. The new 576 Squadron website will be on line in the not too distant future. 19th Nov 2016
There seems to be some confusion regarding my status which has been brought to my attention.
Please be aware that I have not been connected with or had any involvement with the RAF Elsham Wolds Association since 2013.
If anyone wishes to contact me please e mail me direct at my personal e mail address firstname.lastname@example.org 23rd Oct 2016.
103 Squadron Website
This web site has been up and running since mid September 2016. The old 13 Base web site is now off line.
I welcome new contacts and material and will add pages for next of kin etc if they wish to submit suitable profile/item and photos.
I am particularly interested in 103 Sqn history in WW1 and from 1937 to the end of the Battle of France in the summer and 1940. Also post war info and photos which have proved rather elusive over the years. Anything that is relevant to these periods will be most welcome.
I will answer any enquiries re 103 Sqn to the best of my ability. I have been doing this for 30 years and during that period have amassed a huge archive of reference sources, photos and material etc.
