It has now been decided that due to the ever-increasing volume of data, we are going to have to adopt a new policy for the website and change the old established policy of having a separate crew page for each crew.
What we will be doing in future is:
- Make a detailed announcement every time we acquire new material about a member of aircrew
- Add the name or names to the Master List of aircrew on whom we hold data – this is the beginning of the projected database
- Publish an updated version of the Master List on the website – it is planned that the first version of this List will appear before 11 November, Remembrance Day
- Have a feature each month for a particular crew or a particular incident or topic
The only ‘old style’ crew pages currently online are those related to Black Thursday. It is anticipated that these will remain on the site permanently in order to link them in to the display at RAF Wyton.
More details about the Master List will appear when it is published. It will, of course, be fully searchable, and we will be delighted to answer research requests concerning the names which are on it.
