"The team formed in 1988 and were named The Deptford Decorators (by Ron Dell) on account of the painters overalls that they adopted as a uniform in rokakku battles which had been the initial focus for the team.
In 1989 the team started to fly two line kites and when Revolution introduced their four line kite this quickly became the focus of attention.
It was in 1990 that the team started to travel extensively, mostly in Europe but also to more distant places including Malaysia, South Africa, Israel as well as Canada and the USA. The team currently consists of a core of about eight fliers. This allows some flexibility in travel arrangements as the preferred format for team presentations requires six participants.
The current team includes Felix Mottram, Jacob Twyford, Johnny Claffey, Vaughan Livingstone, Romney Johnstone, Ashley Mottram, and Martin Linford. Margaret Walker, RIP 2022, flew with the team from c2011. Recent guest fliers include Chris Beel RIP, Jim and Lynn Foster (USA) and David Hathaway (Canada).
