It's that time of year again!
It's the time of year when I have to pay for the hosting of this site. My time, which is now my own, is given for free, as are my technical abilities - such as they are!
But I do have to pay for hosting.
I apologise for the late appearance of this annual message but unfortunately I'm just over a bout of Covid. If this was the "light" version that I had then my sympathies are with those who've really been hit by more serious symptoms, and a special thought goes out to those who may have lost loved ones through this terrible affliction.
Many sincere thanks to all those who have kindly made donations throughout the year. No matter how large or small they are very much appreciated and I hope I replied to thank each donor personally.
However I have to say that, in spite of a request to do so when someone registers as a member of the site for the first time, very few people actually do make a donation. It is usually the faithful few regulars who help keep the site going for all of us to use.
So if you think the site is worth keeping going in this day and age of "social media" such as individual Faceache groups etc. then please click on the donate button in the menu bar.
Thanks and may I wish you all a Happy, Healthy and especially a Safe New Year.
My father served with the Royal Signals from 1941 to 1946. There is a query regarding the 230 Independent Company Air Formation Signals. I received my father army record from the MOD last August and found that he served with this company from 1 June 1945 until embarkation back to the UK from Ceylon in December 1945.
