Welcome to FourFax, the web site of the IV (AC) Squadron Association. The aims of this web site are to:
- Put and keep members in touch with each other
- Publish news from members
- Publish news from IV (AC) Sqn
- Distribute an occasional e-mail newsletter
- Membership is open to anybody who has ever served on IV (AC) Squadron
To request membership of the Association, please go to the Register page.
My name is Chris Parker. I was a pilot on IV from 1979 to 1984 at RAF Gutersloh. Some of you will remember that I started FourFax as a newsletter in the early 1990s. The technology at that time made producing a newsletter a high-workload task, particularly at ‘press’ time. Technology has moved on somewhat since then and I’m hoping that the internet will be able to bring us together in a way that a paper newsletter never could. Also, of course, I’m hoping that I’ll be able to keep the web site reasonably up-to-date and produce an e-mail newsletter from time to time without having to burn the candle at both ends.
Most pages of this web site are password-protected. In order to access these pages please go to the Register page and complete your details and I will e-mail to you a username and password. Note that your address, telephone number and e-mail address will not be made available to other members unless you agree to it. Your details will never be passed to any companies or commercial concerns, but your membership information will be stored on my computer.
There are four types of membership of the Association, so I’d better explain what they are! Firstly, there is Life Membership, which consists of members who paid Â£50 for Life Membership to the ‘old Fourfax’ ten years ago (Annual Membership back then was Â£5 per year). Secondly, there is Ordinary Membership, for want of a better term, which is everybody who has served on the Squadron apart from Life Members. Thirdly, there is Honorary Membership, for people who had a close and respected association with the Squadron but didn’t actually serve on IV. Finally there is Associate Membership for ex-military people who had friends on the Squadron and just want to keep in touch.
