Thunder and Lightnings

A fabulous source of imformation on post-war British miliatry from author Damien Burke – whose excellent book, TSR-2: Britain’s Lost Bomber, is well worth getting hold of.

Britains Smallwars

This excellent website covers all the post-war British conflicts that always fascinated me.  Drawing information from a number of sources, not least veterans themselves, everything’s covered, from Palestine to Afghanstan and all points in between.


The Air Combat Information Group is a brilliant and substantial online resource for anyone interested in modern military aviation. Fancy reading about Zimbabwean Air Force Hawk operations in Congo?  It’s there.  Equadorian and Peruvian Mirages and Sukhois in the 1995 Cenepa War?  That’s there too.  ACIG offers authoritative new research on some fascinating, off-the-beaten-track air wars


Run by Bill de Bass, a veteran of the Salalah Field Surgical Team, this excellent website has become the outstanding online source

Vulcan To The Sky

If you love Vulcans then you must visit this site – and then lend your support.  This is the home of the remarkable team behind the world’s last remaining airworthy Vulcan., XH558.   Their Chief Pilot is Martin Withers, the Captain of Vulcan 607 on the Black Buck 1 raid.

Blackburn Buccaneer

A real labour of love this one. Primarily, I think, for medellers, but it is a mine of information and has some beautifully rendered aircfraft profiles.

Forces Childrens Trust

The Forces Children’s Trust is charity devoted to helping children whose father or mother has died, or has sustained life threatening injuries whilst serving as a member of the British Armed Forces.

Combat Stress

Combat Stress is the UK’s leading military charity specialising in the care of Veterans’ mental health.


The military forum can be a source of good information.  But it can also also degenerate into something rather less than than.  Visit regularly and you’ll soon figure out who’s got anything useful to contribute.
