Getting this Newsletter out has been a bit of a struggle as after over 10 years of excellent service my Dell Vostro 200 computer failed. Even our computer wizard, Richard Cannon, couldn’t find the cause of the problem but he did manage to get it working well enough for word processing in ‘Safe Mode’, allowing me to start NL.53, and then set up my replacement computer. Thank you, Richard, very much.

With this Newsletter comes the AGM notice and Membership Renewal form. Please note that the subscription is now 7 as announced at last year’s AGM. This is the first increase since we launched the Association 17 years ago. Please pay while it is fresh in your mind; and if you missed last year’s add a fiver for that at the same time (see back page).

The articles by Members in this edition are some of the last I had in stock (don’t worry if yours hasn’t featured yet, it will) so please put fingers to keyboard or pens to paper and record you memories of life at Hawker or in aviation - or any in other field or topic of yours you think will interest HA Members.

Please send your contributions to: The Editor, Chris Farara, 24 Guildown Road, Guildford, Surrey, GU2 4EN, tel 01483 825955, or e-mail Chris Farara E-mail.
