    it looks like it could be a version of it. I've found an online source showing a mark v mount which is very similar in terms of it's counter springing system, but instead of going straight to the base, it's mounted on the back of a chair which is then mounted into the base. the plot thickens!

    The 'Motley' was discussed here and in a related thread.

    How embarrassing, I did that 13 years ago! Re-doing a part of it now with re-drawn digital mapping (whilst on holiday) as its snowing here in Perth.
    It will form a part of a new AiX ARG magazine due out in a couple of weeks on airfield defences.

    Culmhead was one of the first sites that I placed on my website, I have amassed many photos over the years and I had never updated the website. I made another visit last year and took lots more photos and I have tried to update the website. Culmhead has a bit of a hold on me, It seems to be taking me a long time and I have done loads of new & updates and still cannot finish Culmhead off. I really like the airfield but am so sad every time I visit it gets more dilapidated. Perhaps that is why its taking me so long? To me it should have been saved as a museum??? but there is no money for that.

    Hi Gents,

    Does anyone know who the Culmhead airfield site owners are please? I'm really keen to gain permission to visit in order to measure up some parts for the Metheringham tower restoration.

    Thanks,

    Sapper.

    Is there anything substantial underground here, particularly beneath the radio station location in the centre of the airfield?
