The RAF Halton 217 Craft Apprentice Entry Website

7th January 1970-24th February 1972


Welcome to the RAF Halton

217 Craft Entry



20.40 08 July:  Geoff Terry (Ex Oxford Flight) is
                         looking for any like minded souls
 who would be interested in a 'mini-
 reunion'/get together in Manchester
                         over the w/e of 14th/16th Sept 
 centred around the RAF100 Anniversary
 Exhibition (Cathedral Gardens, Corporation 
   St,Manchester,M4 3BG) Any one 
 interested can post onto the Guestbook
 on this site. 

19.50  08 Jun:  Not much to say other than thanks 
to Nick for renewing the domain name
and to those who have offered to chip
in and help with the cost.

19.00  15 Feb:  So with no further interest for
a Reunion I'm withdrawing my offer
to organise one. Only 13 people
bothered to reply (A 20% return)
and it is not enough to go forward.
To those 13 I'm sorry but there it

On another note this website does 
not run itself. Up until 2 years ago 
site owner Nick was shelling out 
around US$30 /yr. 
For the last two I have paid it. 
Now I can't speak for Nick
but I'm having doubts as to whether
it is worth it as there just isn't  
any worthwhile involvement from 
the vast majority of the 
Just putting it out there.........

13.30 25 Jan:  It would appear that there is not too
                       much appetite for a reunion just yet
                       with only 13 replies in two weeks out 
                       of 63 sent.
                       Unless there is a rapid uptake in the 
                       next few days then I'll draw a line 
                       under it for now.
                       (Of course the vast majority of 
                        people won't know this as they 
                        hardly ever check the website)

20.30 13 Jan:  To those 7 (of 63!) who've replied 
   to my email re a reunion,Thank you.
Three emails bounced so the 
following must have changed 
their contact details; 
Alan Bellis
Hamish Spooner
Dan Horrocks
If you see this guys,or if someone 
can tell them,please let me have 
your new details.
