Assistance on Binbrook, Warboys & Upwood required.
Permalink   


Hi all

i am undertaking a bit of a'nostalgia tour' of Binbrook, Warboys & Upwood in December this year and was looking for some information on whether any remnants of those air bases may still be there? My father, Peter Cavenagh (although known as H.C.L Cavenagh 410451 back then) was first with 460 squadron then transferred to 156 squadron and flew out of those bases between 18/11/43 and 18/11/44.

The Lancaster crews he flew with mostly were piloted by D.B. Falconer (21 ops) or J.O. Cameron (26 ops).

if anyone has any more information, crew photos, favorite pubs they may have frequented (that are still there) I'd be very grateful.

Regards, Russ (Sydney, Australia)

You may want to post your enquiry in the relevant sections of www.airfieldresearchgroup.org.uk/forum as the contributors there have a wide knowledge of the various airfields and the remaining structures

Regards

Pete

have a look at     http://www.huntspost.co.uk/news/frustration-at-planning-delays-over-run-down-former-air-base-1-4990688

for the current state of RAF Upwood! Try and take in the Imperial War Museum at Duxford, well worth the visit.

 

Hope you have a good trip.
