Just found this site, some great information and a lot of very dedicated collectors/living historians. My main intetest is in the unsung heroes of the groundcrews. I live near York.

Hi,

York as in 'Jolley old England's' very own York? If so, you aren't a million miles from me up here in Washington, Tyne and Wear. There's a good chance I might meet you at the Elvington, Croft Circuit or Yorkshire Wartime Experience events if you come along. They are all within easy striking distance for you.

Steve

Thanks fella's I appreciate the welcome, Scott I have spoken to you on the U.S. militaria forum, you have kindly made me some name tapes. Steve, it is York, York and I go to Elvington each year and each year I admire your set up next to the C-47 and Osgood, thanks for the warning regarding the doughnuts, unfortunately it comes a little too late as none of my original coveralls fit anymore, so am having to try and find some good repro's.

Welcome to our home.

As has been said, pull up a chair, sit back and enjoy the warmth of like minded comrades.

MIKE.
