This website is intended for the use of members of the
68th Entry of Aircraft Apprentices at Halton. Contributions to keep it
interesting and up to date are always welcome.
My ISP since my moving to Switzerland is Cablecom. They
provide 50Mb of Web space as part of their broadband package. This is more
than enough to cope with new input. The present site takes up just under 10Mb.
Where possible this site will make cross-references
(hyperlinks) to other sites to avoid wasting Web space.
Another advantage of cross references is central maintenance of

Some sites I have already included are:- RAFHAAA, 33rd, 69th, 70th and
