Borders Aviation Archaeology was born out of a collaboration between an individual researcher, Ray and an Aviation Artist & Historian with already established credentials in the field, Rob. Many letters & phone calls led to a meeting in which Rob acted as guide to the Dolwen Hill Lancaster, item one in our menu and the plane in which my uncle flew ~ that makes me Ray then.

I caught the Aviation Archaeology bug from Rob & our work together moved on to include a field I did have some experience in, playing with computers.

Aviation Archaeology is about history and discovery, it is also very much about respect, however interesting a site may be it must be remembered that almost certainly one or more people died, their memory, their property & the feelings and wishes of their relatives must be respected. This we do, we also research as much as possible about the accident or military action as appropriate plus the men & women involved. Many stories of bravery & heroism emerge along with the details of a lost plane, it is knowing the whole story of 'man & machine' that makes the search complete and adds to knowledge of us all about our history.

Please remember that you should always obtain permission from the landowner, the MOD & if possible the relatives before visiting a crash site. Take nothing but photographs & follow the countryside code.
