Acknowledgements & Thanks

As a private individual I have been humbled by the amount of help and assistance offered to me by various people. This is my way of offering thanks for all their help.


My site has been up and running now since April 1999. In that time it has grown from a small tribute page to what many visitors have told me is a fine web site. Thank you to all you people who have visited the site and sent emails and left messages on my guestbook. The site has now been visited over 69000 times though has now moved to a new "home" on the web so now the counter has been re-set.


I would like to start by thanking General Chuck Yeager who has been the inspiration behind my idea for this website. If it had not been for me reading his wonderful autobiography "YEAGER", I would not have written to him and received the signed photograph which now takes pride of place on my living room wall. That was what spured me into action to create this website.

The following people I would like to thank have given me so much help in many different ways. This site would not be what it is today without their help.
