My father Don Macmillan in NSW Australia pasted away 27 May 2015- His buddy Gordie Evans was going to notify you but I received an email and see is he still on the surviving list. FYI

Hi. Jenny,
Sadly its appears that this site is no longer operative; presumably because there are not many of us left.
I served with Jim on 891 squadron

Hi, following up on some papers with my father Jim Bowles from the Benbow Division air apprentices 1941-1944. See from your archive that that organisation is no longer active, so trying you to see if you have any current contact details? Thank you Jenny Bowles

I wish to inform you that my Father 'Red' Skilton passed away on 11th August, after a month in hospital. He was fighting until the very end. I am trying to arrange committal of his ashes in the Solent, a service provided by the Royal Navy out of Portsmouth. If anyone would like any details, you may contact me at neil_skilton@yahoo.com
Regards

The visiting Lancaster from Canada, which has been operating in the UK all summer in company with our own Lanc. Was rebuilt by an ex Newcastle
APP. He was in Hood division and passed out as an Aircraft Artificer 5th class.It cost $10,000 took 11 years. He was team leader. His name is Norman Etheridge. I met him at an American" fly in" at Oshkosh. with the Aircraft .. He had fitted it out with a few seats and traveled around in it with a bevy of youhg ladies who where all helpers at the rebuild. So Newcastle shines again.

Just wanted to let everyone know that my father Red Skilton is still living in Stubbington, although has very reduced mobility these days. I just found this website for him, and he was glad to get up-to-date with the news and reminisce a little. Thanks for putting in the effort to keep the site going, and best regards to all the members.
Regards

Hallo Richard. I think you do a very good job. As a guest I do enjoy reading your news letter. As you knoW I count Gordie as one of my very loyal friends. WE WERE SHIPMATES ON THE HMAS SYDNEY ORIGINAL VOYAGE FROM THE UK. .I JOINED THE NAVY IN ANSON DIVIDION IN JULY1942 AND PASSED OUT IN HOOD DIVISION IN DECEMBER1945. THERE WAS A BIG CHANGE IN THE TEST JOB AS THIS WAS THE FIRST DIVISION TO COPLETE THE APPRETICESHIP AFTER THE END OF THE WAR. I HAVE FORWARDED DETAILS TO GORDIE I AM SURE HE COULD MAKE AN ARTICLE FROM THAT. GIVE HIM A KICK FROM ME . MY REGARDS TO ALL EX APPS ....GORDON WINTERBOURNE
