    Default Aldermaston

    Having just spent a while looking at the flashearth link for Aldermaston on another thread it looks like there are some original buildings still there, does anyone who what is left? Is the Tower still standing?

    Plenty of activity there. I have to drive past the place on a regular basis, usually at going home time ( I live about 5 miles away). Lots of roadworks going on outside the entrance to the site with 2 new roundabouts having been installed.

    I've been reading Army Air Force Stations: A Guide to the Stations Where U .S . Army Air Forces Personnel Served in the United Kingdom During World War II (Anderson, Capt. Barry J.; USAF Historical Research Center, Maxwell AFB: 1985). It lists all Second World War USAAF stations in the U.K. in three ways: by numerically by station number, alphabetically by name and alphabetically by county.

    I noticed that in Berkshire it listed Station # 467, Aldermaston and #476 Aldermaston Court. Are these not the same place? Can anyone shed light on this?

    Aldermaston Court is a country house, now a hotel by the name of Aldermaston Manor.
    As Station 476 it was the Headquarters of IX AFSC from December 1943.

    All the best,
    PB
