This site is dedicated to all who served with this Squadron.

Special thanks go to everyone who contributed with stories and pictures.

Since I started my, what I thought would be a small weekend project back on my Birthday in March 1995, I could never have imaged just how far it would go, and the people I would end up talking to and some of them becoming really good friends. Inevitably, time takes its toll and most of the guys I met up with at various events have sadly passed away, but I still have the memories.

Gone but “NEVER FORGOTTEN”

Eric Clegg (18.05.13), Keith Stevens (21.08.13), Harry Hoffe (24.5.14), Bramwell Harvey (30.10.14), John Bissett (03.01.15). Peter Illingworth (15.02.15), Bob Kinch (02.04.15), Denis Robinson (28.07.15) , Ron ‘Bluey’ Hurman (21.08.15) Cyril Potter (01.04.16) W/O. Robert E. Strange (01.05.16) Stan Williams (02.08.16) Ray Johnson (03.09.16) Frank Shelton (30.12.16) Gus Ardeline (12.05.18) John Anderson (31.06.18) Alf Allsopp (18.08.18) Frank Lee (04.01.2019) (updated 08.01.2019)            

It’s been an Honour and a privilege to have been able to help these guys get back in touch with old friends, and to post their memories and pictures on the net, so future generations of family members can look back and feel very proud of their relatives and know that their names will live on.

So thank you to you all for your support over the last 24 years.

When I launched the site on the 21st June 2002, my aim was to help old friends find each other and for the families and relatives to know that their loved ones would never be forgotten and always be remembered. I hope that I have done that.

Christmas card

As another year comes to a close I would like thank everyone for their support over the year, sadly we said goodbye to Gus, John and Alf gone but never forgotten.

It's been another year of ups and downs March saw me take the hard decision to close The Memorial hut and move on, in May things started looking up with the prospect of a new project and finally bringing the boys back home to RAF Warmwell, this was longest place the Squadron spent throughout the whole of the war.

I'm happy to say thanks to The Spitfire club at Crossways the Squadron now has a new home, with a permanent exhibition on the first floor covering the whole of the Squadron history from 1939 to 1967 " History through a lens" which will officially be opened on the 16th March 2019

making it 24 years, since I started doing my small weekend project, and it's also my fifty Birthday. So if your free over the weekend of 16th and 17th March please drop in and take a look.

I know I say this every year but a massive thank you to all the families and the guys for their support. I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year, roll on 2019.

Cheers Rob
