576 Squadron Photo Gallery
I have added a small 576 Sqn Photo Gallery to be going on with. This is rather thin at the moment but I will add more pics when I get round to it. 11th April 2017
Cyril Charles Rollins DFC
I was very sorry to hear recently Cyril Rollins DFC passed away in Feb at the grand old age of 96. He was a well known 103/576 vet for many years. As my own very modest tribute I have added a Profile page for him. I would welcome any additional info re that and will add it on to the item. 26th March 2017
Progress rather slow with the RAF Elsham Wolds and 576 Sqn sites. This is due to 90% of the work at the moment being concerned 103 Sqn. Plus I have other interests and commitments as well as websites etc. I will persevere for now till I get fed up of it and want to do other things. 11th March 2017
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 airfield soon.
There is more than enough material on file to warrant one.
News of this will follow. 6th Feb 2017
576 Squadron Website.
576 Squadron website now live and I will add new content in due course.
The site is similar in format to my new 103 Squadron RAF website. Most of the 576 website content will be from the Elsham Wolds period. The Fiskerton era will be dealt with on the Fiskerton airfield website as before.
If anyone wishes to send items or pics for posting on this new site please feel free to get in touch. Any good new material which has not been published or used on the internet before is always welcome. 20th 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
Since I took my 13 Base site off line several people have expressed disappointment at the loss of the 576 Squadron Profiles. In view of this I have set up this small site for 576 Squadron and reposted the Profiles as before.
I have more items I can add which are already written up and on file and I will post these in due course.
