Main Nene K270 Site
Howard Elliott sent a large box, full of print material related to the Murmansk run, end-of-war, and some Nene Reunions. Digitizing some of Howie's material for inclusion on a website will be an ongoing project. It is here - on the Nene site - and in the Nene K270 Facebook group - that you'll find updates.
The box contained:
I'd really like to get in touch with someone who could give permission for some/all of The Real Cold War be put on our website - for free of course. Chris Tye has died. He never married.
