This site was started back in Feb 2002 by myself (Ian Scales) and Bill Cundall, after trawling the 'net for information about the 'trade' we realised there was no specific site for ex & existing, MT Drivers, so we decided to create one.

We both met up while serving a seven year stint at Church Fenton where we had many a memorable moment before Bill was demobbed in 1988, I left in 1986 for Bruggen, subsequently entering civvy street in 1990. We remained good friends and both settled in the Selby area, frequently trying to re-enact those beer calls in the local. In Feb 2005 Bill decided to take a back seat from the site and retired to sunny Cyprus.

Update: 2015 I have now retired to the Isle of Wight. The website has grown from strength to strength since 2002 and is the largest collection of RAF MTD nostalgia, information and contact details on the 'net.

I enjoy everyone's contributions, comments & personal support along with numerous requests for information and will remain committed to maintaining the website for serving, ex serving and future generations.

If you have any Photos or a source of MT related pictures past or present send them in and we'll post them on the appropriate page along with your comments, you can email pictures in GIF or JPEG format or contact me for a postal address.

Get us bookmarked, send in your details and check back regularly you never know who you might bump into.

Update: Mar 2008 For the first time in 5 years the site has had a total revamp, this has become necessary to enhance the 'Full Members' privileges and get rid of the dated 'frames' format that the site was originally written in. As some of you will know the Full Members section of the old site was somewhat difficult to navigate and you didn't seem to get much more for your money than that available to a visitor, who was able to access most of the data. I have tried to address this imbalance by making the majority of the site available to Full Members Only. This has also become a necessity as the amount of work to maintain the site has now far exceeded the original expectations and I think it's fair to say that there should be at least some reward for my time.

Full Members can now use the searchable Trace a Mate & Driver's database's, and are now able to search for details within a drivers profile. The R.I.P section is now fully searchable by anyone. Full Members Only access to all full size images throughout the site.

A Non Member will still be able to add their details to the 'A2Z' as well as sending in 'Trace a Mate' requests and any material for the site content i.e. Photo's etc. The 'R.I.P' section will also remain available to all.

I am maintaining the Full Membership donation at £4.95 per annum which it has been for the past 5 years. I feel this represents very good value in relation to sites of a similar nature. Full Members will still also be able to send in a picture & comment for inclusion on their profile page and take advantage of a 'Full Members' discount on any polo shirts.

I have decided to keep the maintenance of the site manual, although this means more work and submissions can take a few days before appearing 'live', I still feel it gives the site more of a human touch.
