Mike became self employed doing electronic servicing after leaving the RAF in 1975, He opened the shop as Cardigan Electronics in 1980. In 2003 he started building a web site dedicated to the History & Memories of RAF Aberporth. Located just five miles north of Cardigan.
The web site has evolved over the years into 30 to 40 pages of photographs, history, stories and general knowledge about the RAF Camp from it is opening in 1940 to it’s closure in 1984. There are also pages dedicated to other RAF Stations that once housed the Bloodhound Missile systems during the Cold War years.
Below are just a few of the images you will see if you visit the site.
It is still evolving. To peruse all the pages can take well over an hour.
(Please note RAF Aberporth as it was, has now been demolished.)
