    Should we slow down the rate of these threads, as Malcolm suggested some days back until AB magazine catches up. We are swamping yhe forum and pushing off all other messages. Maybe they should all go in the sub forum?

    I for one cannot find the time to keep up with the volume of them, I only managed i think seven threads last night in three hours.

    CROSS 351266 - died of chronic nephritis at RAF Hospital Cosford. Source is a PM on here, but I'm really sorry I've forgotten who sent it!

    Regards

    Simon

    PS - I think Dennis has a point - maybe one or two per day would help the situation?

    Hi Simon, that would be from me (regarding Cross), most probably! He was on strength of 93 Group at the time of his death. Cheers, Tom
