It is with pleasure that I hand over the control of the Forum to Jagan.

This is the first stage of handover and sees transfer of all control and ownership of the forum.

I've asked Jagan to alter my membership to registered user when he next logs in which will cancel all admin rights I have.

In the background I have given access to the behind the scenes part of the web site to allow maintenance and will remain in joint control of this area until easyspace accounts are split and domain is transferred.

To all extents the web site now runs with new ownership and I wish them all success with the necessary moving of furniture and redecoration.

I hope that I will be permitted to remain as a registered user and continue to post when I have an input to make.

Finally I would like to express my thanks to all those who have contributed to this forum now and in the past.

With fond regards

Ross

Hi Ross,

You have made this site the premier discussion forum for all things RAF which has greatly aided my own research into the PRU. Good luck with what ever you have planned in the future.

Best Regards

May I add my thanks and appreciation for all Ross has done.

Does this now mean Volume 2 of Coastal Command Losses will be appearing anytime soon?
(...tongue firmly in cheek...)

It goes without saying - from all of us.. that I hope your new plans and commitments will still leave room for participation in RAF Commands at the same pace as before.

Ross,
Not only have you provided a Forum of inestimable value, but you have - by virtue of that - also given me some friends.
Well done that man.

G'day Ross

I can not thank you enough for all the work you have done here. You stuck with it even when bombarded by our favorite Russian spammer. I also appreciate your confidence in me when you made me a moderator. I too look forward your your next Coastal Command publication. Bravo Zulu Sir!

Cheers...Chris

May I concur with everyone who says 'Thanks' for your efforts on this on the last 10 years plus without your vision of starting the forum our collective knowledge of RAF Operations from 1918 onwards would be much much poorer

Good luck with your new venture

Ross,

Grateful thanks from me for all you have so generously shared over the years in your website, book and of course this incredible forum. I'm not sure that you fully appreciate just how many people you have unwittingly assisted over the years by providing this forum as a resource for us all to meet and exchange information. It is not only those who post here who benefit, but the relatives of airmen whose names are mentioned in the posts.

Wishing you all the very best with your new ventures and hope to see your continued words of wisdom appearing here for many years to come.

To those who take RAF Commands onwards, I salute you. Long may it continue in the same was has it has done for this past decade and longer.

My best to all

There's nothing really left to say, Ross, other than to echo everyone else and say "Thank you" for creating such an invaluable resource.

May your new project be as successful as this is.

Ross,

Many thanks for me, too, Ross.

Many folk have benefitted from the forum over the 15 years of its existence to date, not just the regular enthusiast, researcher and historian, but also those who have come across the forum while seeking information about a loved one who was lost during the war, often discovering facts and closure that had otherwise eluded them. And, as remarked another above, the forum has also introduced us to many new friends along the way.

It's amazing to think of how much we all would have remained ignorant of had there been no rafcommands forum in the first instance.

Well done Ross and all the best where ever your future endeavours take you!

Thank you for taking on this huge responsibility, and so decisively in such a short space of time. Wishing you every success in this and all of your endeavours.

Regards,

Ross,

I has been an honor to lurk and to occasionally post on this superb site characterized by a civility that sets the standard, and will continue to do so in the capable hands of another good egg, Jagan. There have been so many eye-opening postings that have jolted message thread forward along the winding path of discovery. Ross, take a bow, as you are ultimately responsible for each and every one. Best wishes, and thanks!

I'm sure Ross had little idea when he first started RAFC that it would become such an essential, well-informed and friendly site. That it has done so is largely due to his management for which no words can adequately express my appreciation.
Thanks also go to Jagan in taking over this onerous task and also to all those who have stumped up some of their hard earned cash in order that the site may continue to exist.

Hello

Thanks to Ross for his superb site and for maintaining it all these years. The forum is of the highest standard and we have all benefited from it. Many offboard contacts were made due to this discussion board, and sometimes even created meetings between members.

Good luck to Jagan.

There are many members on this site who know their stuff.

The crew did in-flight refuelling and swapped pilots.
There was no loss in altitude, airspeed, nor a course-change.
It seems to me that Ross was our pilot and skipper, and a good one.
So to speak.
