    Paul please could tell me where is the site of this USNASD in Exeter I suspect it has long since been built upon? Somewhere near the Exe perhaps. Thanks Ant

    Looking a bit sorry for itself now though, assuming I have the right place!

    I use an old solid wood dining chair at my desk. More comfortable than cushioned ones

    There is a lot more coverage on http://www.bing.com/maps. With the facility to zoom and change direction it is great if you haven't the time to get out and about. A lot of the old hangars have lost their sides and doors, could it be the scrap metal prices caused this?

    Don't knock it Paul. It gives you field archaeologists some pointers. Think of it as unpaid research assistants

    Incidentally, can you give us an example of what was stored here?

    Is there another place like this near Exeter? I recall having a poke around some *camp* about '77 & finding sheds/huts etc full of stuff. No one there, like they'd just walked away & left everything. I guess it could be Topsham, but I think there were more buildings?
