    Some bad news regarding this years grand open day in May, see below.

    Dear Member,

    Following weeks of wet weather and little change forecast, we have had to make a difficult decision. Our parking area in on grass which at the moment is water logged and unusable.

    Therefore the committee has reluctantly decided to cancel the open day on 13th May.

    If you had planned to attend, maybe you would like to come to another open day. I list below the other open days in 2012, open from 10am to 4pm and admission is free.

    Sunday May 27th
    Saturday June 9th
    Sunday June 24th
    Sunday July 29th
    Sunday Aug 26th
    Sunday Sept 30th
    Sunday Oct 28th

    I hope to see you at The Red Feather Club soon

    Regards,



    Helen Krawczyszyn
    Secretary
    95th Bomb Group Heritage Association

    Pic I found at the 95th BG website: member of the press with some crewmen at Horham. What's that in the background - the church?

    Very good REF. The first tower photograph is the same as the one that I posted-up on the Control Tower Thread. Someone sent it to me years ago, though who it was I don't now remember Love the second shot that includes more of the tower area.

    What I find interesting is in photo #9 there doesn't appear to be any sign of the bomb stores, would the photo have been taken during construction or have they been blanked out somehow?

    Anyway, here are a few more photos I took today at the Red Feather Club.

    11 - New Roll of Honor


    12 - And again with less reflections


    13 - The museum


    14 - In the Blue Lounge there was a mock up of B-17 Crew positions


    15 - Pilot & Co-Pilot seat


    16 - 'Ten Knights in a Bar Room'


    17 - Wall Art


    18 - More Wall Art


    19 - Red Feather Club Sign


    20 - Hay Bailing on the old airfield

    Assuming the view on Picture 9 is from the east to west then it is probably new construction since there are no obvious dispersals. But then, the image is not very contrasty and main features are difficult to match.

    Definitely from the east as you can see the two T2 hangars on the west of the airfield. There aare a number of Frying Pan Dispersals on the photo that can just be made out.

    I can see the T2s now that you have pointed them out! Records indicate that the airfield opened in 1942. The Type D bomb stores built were to a September 1942 drawing (first issue) so would not have been constructed until late 1942 or early 1943. But then, censorship was the norm!
