Welcome to the
 
  R.A.F. TRANSPORT COMMAND VETERANS ,   Website.
 
 
 

 

 
The Website, R.A.F. Transport Command Veterans Association has been up and running since 31/07/2010, and was disbanded in December 2013, as we could not get anybody to take over the position of secretary or Treasurer, so I have now built this Free website,
 
but we could still do with more items from you all.
 
 
 Please send anything to me Les Haines.
 
I have had quite a few from Phil Crook,
 
so far. Thanks Phil.

I AM SURE THERE ARE MANY MORE PHOTOS AND STORIES OUT THERE FOR YOU TO SUBMIT FROM YOUR TIME IN TRANSPORT COMMAND???

   We were originally known as the RAF Lyneham Old Boys Association and have been established for the past fourteen years, over that period many ex RAF bods who were in Transport Command have mentioned that they wished their station had an association, this would have given them the chance to contact old friends, and so the L.O.B.A. committee decided that L.O.B.A. would become R.A.F. TRANSPORT COMMAND VETERANS ASSOCIATION.
 
But sad to say, on the 1st  October 2013, Jim and Doreen had to stand down as Secrtary and Treasurer, due to Jim's ill health and as no one else was available to take the positions on, it was decided by the Committee to call a halt to the Association, and just leave me as Webmaster to keep all the items received on this site, and hopefully accept more item's from any ex Transport Command Veterans.
 
Les Haines.

This Website was first published to the Internet on 31 July 2010.
 
And modified on the 2nd February 2011.
 
Again modified on the 11th December 2011.
 
and again now 30th April 2014, due to the stand down of the Committe and Management.
 
 
I have changed the page headings. To access them just go to the one with the first letter of the station you require. The stations in Black mean's there is no  information on that page only the Station Badge, any in this blue, it has some information, once the page gets information that warrants a whole page, it will have a page of it's own.
