What happened to the base?

It was knocked down some time around the mid 1980's, maybe later. A retail park now stands on the site. Queensmead school, which was opposite the entrance/exit is still there. 

Exiting left from the site along Victoria Road traffic would have come to the roundabout at South Ruislip, this is now the site of traffic lights. The BEA building which stood on this junction has been razed to the ground and a supermarket stands there now. 

There are some pictures here

Exiting right for the base after about 3/4 of a mile a roundabout would have been reached, where the Eastcote Arms pub is. This pub is still there and was refurbished in 2007 and is now called The Eastcote but the Kodak factory (hence the roundabout being known locally as Kodak Roundabout) which stood by this roundabout has long since gone, to be replace by a retail park.

I am trying to contact/trace somebody, what should I do?

Well it would be churlish to suggest that this is the place to do it, but you never know. If the person you seek has not posted to the site then why not share your thoughts with others, and that might lead to them finding you? There is also the Ruislip Reunited section on the site, you could try/look there

How do I submit a message for inclusion?

There are two ways, if you want your message to be put on the main message page then you should send Ruislip Online an e-mail or you can submit a message to appear straight away to the notice board for this section, where this latter board might be best for "Jim seeks George" type messages - so do both! There is a link to the board below. Or try Ruislip Reunited

Must my e-mail address appear?

No, though if you want to try and find ex comrades then without it they will have a more difficult job!

Will my e-mail address get used for junk mail lists?

Ruislip Online does maintain an e-mail list gathered from people who have visited the site, this is split in to those living locally and those afar. Ruislip Online NEVER sends SPAM and NEVER sells e-mail addresses. You MIGHT get the odd mailing concerning things to do with either the site, or Ruislip in general (on average four times a year). You may ask to be removed from the list at any time. Bravenet MIGHT use addresses (though I do not think they do).

I have some photographs that might interest others, how do I get them on the site?

E-mail them to Ruislip Online BUT, and it is a big BUT, only e-mail one picture, even if you have 100 that are great. Ruislip Online will then come back to you about getting more from you, as appropriate. Why? Well rather than fill my computer up with files which equally take hours to download I would rather just have one to start with to make sure they are suitable. Preferably in .jpg format - and NOT .tif! By sending them you pass over all copyright, which you equally must own in the first place! Please use this link to e-mail them.

Can I add something to or remove/alter an earlier posting?

Yes, to the main web site. Altering messages posted the the Bravenet board is less easy and will only be changed if alterations are required for, say, legal reasons or if a faux pas of immense proportions has been made.
