Update 4th May 2017

I will continue updates through the Summer but not as much as I want to relax a bit. I will answer any e mails received and also post material submitted as before.

Update - 25th April 2017.

Carol Fowler is joining the team which now makes 2 of us. She is most welcome as her professional expertise re  website matters and her ongoing interest in genealogy will be a great asset. In addition she will be a regular contributor from now on as and when other duties permit.

Update - 11th March 2017

This site is coming along slowly. 90% of my input will involve my 103 Sqn website for the next months and RAF Elsham Wolds and 576 Sqn sites will have to wait their turn. I have added a section for local crashes which has plenty of interest and potential. I will add to that in due course.

If anyone wishes to submit anything for addition to this site please get in touch. If it is relevant, interesting and not been published anywhere else I will gladly use it. 11th March 2017.

Progress Report.

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.

I have produced a separate site for RAF Elsham Wolds as there is more than enough material on file to warrant one.

This site is in conjunction with my 103 Squadron RAF website and 576 Squadron RAF websites. Some of the material used on this site is already on the Squadron sites. I will leave that for now. However all new RAF Elsham Wolds material will be posted on this site and I will update quite regularly. 7th Feb 2017.


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 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.

RAF Elsham Wolds Website.

This site is complementary to my 103 Squadron and 576 Squadron sites.
