6th January 2017

On the 6th January we heard the sad news that Steve Hall had passed away. Steve was one of the pioneers of what would come to be known as Aviation Archaeology, formerly as a member of the Wealden Aviation group and, amongst other things, one of the originators of the concept of a museum at Tangmere. Steve worked for many years with our leading Luftwaffe historian Melvin Brownless, he enriched the lives of all of us that were privileged to know him. We will never forget his friendship, kindness and his sense of humour, always the prankster and comedian he would often lead you on with some yarn, so you always had to stay sharp. Along with these precious memories Steve also leaves us another Legacy, that which is the large catalogue of historical aviation archives, work collated by him over many decades, much of which was undertaken before the computer age, when letter writing was the means of communication that had to be used. Without this painstaking work hundreds of documents, photos and stories would have been lost. The Aircrew Remembrance Society is proud to be able to reproduce much of his work in many of our web site remembrance pages, a legacy which now in turn is a lasting memorial of remembrance to this legend in our field. Our Missing Man, Our Friend, Steven Hall.

Aircrew Remembrance Society Display Stand and Exhibits.

To further the remembrance work of the society, a stall was obtained at The Buck’s County show in August. Many new contacts were made with farmers and as a result two further crash sites are now under investigation. We were also able to assist numerous members of the public with research information relating to loved ones, and further remembrance pages are soon to be added to the site. A special thanks to Alex King and Ryan Stevens for organising the event, and the distribution of many leaflets on behalf of the society.
