    I'd be interested in these too. I am a member of the RMARG group at RAF Welford.

A small donation to the NAM project would be appreciated, but I shan't insist.
    PM me and the first to do so get's the photos mailed to them, or I'm happy for them to be collected.

    Glen Miller played at Greenham common and later in the evening at the corn exchange Newbury but alas not at Aldermaston
