    Default Tower Query - Bardney

    Hi all,

    Just going through the top copies of my photos and notice that I may have the tower at Bardney incorrectly captioned on my website (nothing new there then!). On the Control Towers site, it is describes as the following: Watch Office for Bomber Satellite and OTU Satellite Stations 13726/41

    Yet the site plan gives it as 7345/41

    Which is correct?

    That is because there were two watch offices, the first to drawing 7345/41 and its replacement 13726/41. This is prob due to a runway extension and the original WO being in a .... viewing position, it was nothing personal against the old WO, but if yer in the wrong place mate, you have gotter go!.

    Looking at the site plan, the watch office hasn't changed position. Do we have a photo of the 7345/41 watch office anywhere that can be used for comparrison?

    I didn't think Bardney had any runway extensions. I was opened in 1943 so should have beed up to the latest Class A standards.
    Could it be a change of plan before building work started?

    Well it could be that originally, 7345/41 was planned but during runway construction, came the upgrade to 13726/41.

    Default RAF Bardney

    Hi, Guys, I met a very nice man yesterday, who is looking after the control tower at bardney, he is in the process of renovating it, he would like to repaint it in its WWII colours.
    ( camouflage? ) but he cannot find any WWII photos of the tower, can you help??
    Latest pictures of the tower will be on Wellingores Battle HQ website shortly.
    Cheers
