NOTE FOR INFO The Roll of Honour index includes a PDF file list of the Airborne Engineers Roll of Honour from WW2 to the present date. It is intended to create separate web pages each of those listed in the Roll of Honour and add them to the alphabetic index currently in place. The page content for most of these individuals will be very brief but at least their names will be listed and not hidden away in the PDF file. It will be a fairly simple but time consuming exercise to perform so bear with me, it will be worth it. I have one more pressing site admin task to carry out before I address the update to the Roll of Honour, namely, creating pages for all AEA Journal articles in the Members Only section of the site, I'm well on the way, it's another of those simple but time consuming exercises.
