Hi Steve,

I won't pretend I understand all that but does it mean you will require a contribution from us ?

I'm up for it, if that is the case.

That is the main site that is under threat..They are not looking for money yet but Phil or someone with the info required must make contact.If we can`t get hold of Phill,the main site pages could be copied and held on someones PC untill a new site is made available.(i did it with another site that was under threat for a different reason) Hopefully it won`t come to that..

Hi Steve,


If I can help I gladly will, my PC expertise isn't up to much so you would have to give me a B3 Course.

Hi Steve,

Unfortunately I don't have WORD installed on my PC, I had a 60 day free trial but that has recently expired, is there an alternative that I could maybe download?

It will be an absolute tragedy if this site was to close and the wealth of information not readily available from other sources is lost as well as the secondary role of providing a focus for BAOR veterans to meet and greet each other

I met Webmaster Phillip on a number of occasions whilst he was on a long career course in the UK. He was subsequently posted to Germany where his parent Regiment was warned off for an operational tour in Afghanistan (the reason for him having to handover his responsibilities for the management of this site).

There is a lengthy article in this month's Craftsman (the REME Corps Magazine) in which he is mentioned. I have no private contact address but will contact you privately Steve by pm to suggest a possible option

Yes it will be a crying shame to lose all that has been collected over the years...regarding the forum if I have it correct this will not be affected and sure Mike will confirm this...have contacted Phil Webmasters unit but they are on block leave however the guard room has a message for him and have also sent a letter snail mail via the BFPO system...hoping the message gets through before the website goes down
Regards
Steve a long way off retirement!

If you are willing to have a go, I will e-mail you the password to see what can be done to transfer the site with a new account with 6 month free access to give us some breathing space..

Moin Gordon and Mike
Have found it is easier to copy without accessing the website BUT through a very good contact have found a way to preserve the content in case the owner cannot be found...watch this space...in the meantime HAPPY EASTER to all albino

Hi Guys,
I have admin rights and have been away for a long while due to ill health. I think I still have access to the main site. If I do then I will start to save some of the work. I have some space on an external hard drive. We cannot let this stuff go. Unfortunately I will not be able to do this until next weekend at the earliest - I am aware of the deadline. Honestly, I am ill for a few months and the place falls apart!! Laughing Let me know if there is any specific area you want me to save. I cannot take on the site because of health and time constraints.
Chris

Well I have just tried File - Save As in Internet Explorer saving page as Webpage Complete (*.htm,*html) [Do NOT use Web Archive] which creates a image web page with linked directory with all images in it.
