Tim Wray grew up in Lincolnshire but has lived in Somerset for nearly forty years. He served in the Fleet Air Arm between 1978 and 2001 in the company of wonderful people, had memorable experiences and a fantastic life. After completing an Open University degree Tim left the Armed Forces and entered the teaching profession, but he quickly discovered that he disliked school more as an adult than as a pupil. He is now back working in the aviation world.
He got interested in Auxiliary Units after reading another book on the subject. Even though the basic outline of the organisation and how it was intended to operate is now fairly well understood, Tim believes that there is still much to uncover, and this is what has inspired him to continue to research and write about the subject.
These days Tim lives in Shepton Mallet. His life revolves around family life, long distance running with his wife, and taking his teenage son to play golf. He has an unhealthy obsession in northern soul and continues to follow the fluctuating fortunes of Lincoln City Football Club in the hope that one day the team will be playing in the Premier League.
