Starting out as The Kings Langley Aeromods, and later becoming the'Wayfarers' - a group of 20 or more UK aeromodellers who formed in 1945 - towards the end of WWII - living in and around Watford, Hertfordshire, north-west of London, England. It was a competition club of mainly free-flying (glider, power and rubber duration) model flyers. Members most week-ends attended rallys, galas and other model flying events around London.

The members have now scattered to the four corners of the world. Some now live in Australia, Canada and the U.S. In the last three or four years have been trying to locate each other again. To date, thanks to the power of the Internet and plenty of individual enquiry and even foot-work most of the members have been located, however the following three still illude discovery. If you should know the whereabouts of Peter Floyd, Bill Nichols or Don McLachlan we'd appreciate an email.
