My name is Bob Hewitt and I live in Erith, which is in the northern part of the London Borough of Bexley, United Kingdom. I'm married to Jenny and have two grown up children. We're now both retired and have an allotment in Welling, Kent which keeps us fit and healthy as well as providing us with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables.

My main hobby has been Short Wave Radio followed by Amateur Radio since obtaining a full UK transmitting licence in 1981. My call sign is G4MHJ.

Now that computers have nearly taken over our way of life, the hobby has unfortunately declined in its fascination. It's all too easy now to talk to anybody in the world without radio interference. See my QSL-Cards from the 1960-1970's period.

Since retiring ten years ago I've managed to make further studies of our Family History. With the help of other researchers I've been able to add seventeen thousand names to our joint family tree.

I have been researching my father's WW2 service history in the RAFVR. He was posted to Benbecular, Detling, Hurn, Biggin Hill and Middle Wallop. His discharge documents state that he was at R.A.F. Nether Wallop which is adjacent to Middle Wallop. I have to thank Peter Challis for his RAF knowledge in assisting me in this quest.

Within the Gardening section you will find some photographs of visits to gardens this year as well as visits made in previous years.

The Forum experiment is still progressing albeit slowly but it is great fun - please join if you like identifying places in my county.

The newest addition is a section which links River Thames shipping activities as well as tide information at Erith Pier. The Shipping information is provided by the PLA and is copyright but can be used for personal use. Click Here
