Hi, just joined this site because I know a little bit about this,
The site was run by a guy called Alan Woods who hailed from Rossington originally and was at MGS before me. (I attended 1955 to 1962).
Alan collected stacks of photos and magazines and published them on his website. I sent him my Maltebians for scanning some years ago. He lived in Basingstoke then and I think he had spent some considerable time down there.
Sadly, from emails with a friend, also ex MGS, he thinks that Alan died earlier this month. I don't know how true this is but it explains why the site has gone.
This leads onto what happens with individuals and web hosting. Can anyone else pick up the stored information? Does it just die with the originator? If so it's a pity. I think that this is going to impact on our history collections.
Hope that helps............. Regards
