Trefield International Airlines

Sorry for curving this round from Trefield to Mortons but fun & nostalgic . Barry & Oua, I must've kept the D/O chair warm for you. Marve days eh ?

Someone referred to Tref being with BIA but ,I think, meant British Independent Airlines which would go back, well out of his time frame to Companies like Cally, BUA, Eagle, Dan etc. Anyway, nailed him. Damn.we are a good investigative team eh ? We should be appointed to the Board of "Where Are They Now " !

Definitely BritIsland, Gordo, although possibly Ukay by then? He was on the HP7, otherwise known as “Dah Heral’… tough as ol’ boot” in a Chinese-Hawaii accent.

I just acquired a 1972 edition of T M-J's tome which from a quick flick through seems to be a single volume A - Z in the early LAAS manner of reproduced typed pages. Were other volumes updates/expansions of his original work split into separate alphabetical groups? (Some of the later LAAS books I bought over the years clearly took advantage of easier quality publishing methods!)
