Does anybody know who set up or ran the website British Army Units 1945 Onwards?
A rather detailed website with every regiment, squadron and unit of the British Army - which showed all the known locations, tours, amalgamations, disbanding dates, etc.
The website appears to have vanished off the internet, which is rather a shame for such a great resource

i found this on the ARRSE website;


I've now been in contact with Merlin Jones, who owns the site
Copy and paste - web.archive.org/web/20220419143549/british-army-units1945on.co.uk/

I know that the website british-army-units1945on.co.uk/ might not have been 100% accurate, but it was still a damn good resource.
But it's now off line, and I wonder if anyone knows who owned it and was compiling that information.
It would be a shame to lose that resource, and I'd like to help revive it.

I did email them in 2018, and never got a response. But know that they did change hosting providers which could explain that.
I've reached out to the current Domain and web host, asking that they pass a message on.

So if anyone knows who was doing this website then please do give me a shout

Mark



Having then posted something myself - i got this reply;  ve managed to make contact with the new owner, one Merlin Jones.
Says he's missed the Domain name renewal emails, but is sorting it.
Mean whilst, whole site is stored at

https ://web.archive.org/web/20220419143549/british-army-units1945on.co.uk/

Need to remove the space after https, as it won't let me post without the gap
