Please make a donation towards the running of this site on the SECURE Paypal button below. All monies go to extending the annual 'life' of the site. If, for some reason, it does not work, use the email link. PAYPAL DONATE BELOW and THANK YOU.


To run a site such as this, with its hundreds of pages and scores of different subjects, is a labour of love. And I help so many people who email me almost daily with requests for assistance in finding lost information. But, to do so, requires a lot of my free time. I work nights, so free time is at a premium for all the assistance I give to people. However, this is not without cost. This site costs me some serious dollars to my hosting company. If you click on the pay pal button below you can make a VERY SECURE donation. Purely voluntary of course. Paypal is an eBay owned company and each payment is covered by a money back guarantee. A few people have sent me small donations, it is much appreciated. If you think that I may be able to help you with an enquiry, please mail me on  the link below, but I guarantee nothing. I spend a lot of my free time answering emails, so be aware I may take some time to get round to your query. This site is ideal for reference or education. I also have the only and original comprehensive history of HMS Kite  and her sad unnecessary fate which includes previously classified and never before seen material. HMS Kite is included in my first ever book, details on banner below. Information shared is information saved, so If you need anything off the site please ask, I am usually very accommodating. Clicking on the list below will show the relevant contents. This is a Child Safe Site. This front page was last updated on 13 Sept 2014.

Thanks to the European Union (which I detest) I am now charged VAT at 20% on my web sites, meaning even more cost. Any donations, however small, would be appreciated. And, thanks to donations received, my site is now extended to December 2016 - thank you.

RIP Dave Lukins, you will be sadly missed
