>>>>>>>>>>    Welcome To My Website    <<<<<<<<<<

Bringing together my closest passions within the same website for the first time, each with their own unique style of website.


I recently received an e-mail from representatives of a charity I was keen to support. It relayed information from the MOD allowing me to present news of the uk4u-Thanks charity set up in 2005, to provide Christmas gift boxes as 'a gift from the nation' to all those serving in the forces overseas away from their families.

It's mission statement is to deliver festive cheer to our forces risking their lives on our behalf at Christmas. At a time of year when they are separated from their family and loved ones.

I hope you felt encouraged as I did, enough to consider contributing to the charity. I intend leaving this up for sometime to come as there have been some new developments, simply follow the link to the right for more information.

Dive Whitby
The Wreck of the Rohilla
Representing my passion for diving, this part of my new site still retains elements from my original website. With accurate GPS co-ordinates and brief information for popular wrecks off Whitby.
Many people recognise my main passion today as the hospital ship Rohilla which was lost in tragic circumstances in 1914. The wreck site is possibly the most frequently dived wreck off Yorkshire.
William Riley
Whitby Lifeboat
The William Riley was one of six lifeboats involved when the hospital ship Rohilla was lost. The former lifeboat was found in a derelict state and returned to Whitby for restoration
With its unique maritime heritage Whitby has every reason to be proud of its lifeboat station and her crew. The photograph above was taken during a recent cheque presentation.
