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”

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 25 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.

“SPONSOR A HERO”

IMG_20200623_002134_446small

This being the 80th anniversary of the epic Battle of Britain and we are launching an appeal to build a memorial to the Battle of Britain as fought over the West Country, at Bowleaze Cove, Weymouth, Dorset. 

IMG_4914-1024x768

The idea is for people to sponsor a name for the sum of 15.00, of one of the 544 young men who paid the ultimate sacrifice during the epic Battle of Britain. These names of the fallen will be displayed on three stainless steel plaques, on the front of the memorial, and comprise the complete Roll of Honour.
