Why produce a website?

I have produced numerous reports or extended articles which have either been severely edited for space reasons or not published at all. It seemed a shame not to make them accessible. I also enjoy sharing my photographs. 

I always welcome assistance with my latest research and need fresh, previously unpublished photos for future books. I also have a vast photographic collection and for a modest fee can help with pictures for books, television and other media.

Being a member of the Air-Britain Trust I have unparalleled access to information on any aspect of aviation, so if you have a question do ask me and I will do my best to find an answer.


I am researching for two books at present:

One is on the RAF between the wars in Europe, India and the Far East, intended as a sequel to my book on the RAF in the Middle East.

The second is on the role of the Army Air Observation aircraft in Italy in the Second World War, especially in directing close support aircraft. A key to my books to date has been the extensive use of hitherto unpublished photographs, so if you have an pictures of RAF aircraft between 1918 and 1939 or any Austers or ground attack aircraft in North Africa and Italy between 1943 and 1945 , I would love to hear from you.
