Are you coming to Ramsey this year ? if so it would be great to here what it was like .
Confirmation that the "mystery dispersed site" at Deenethorpe that isn't on the RSP is one, rather than a collection of packing cases:
Not the clearest image I agree, it's a lot clearer on the film this is a still from...
All the best,
A nice image none the less Paul.
A couple more stills I took from the movie, showing a crew unloading on Dispersal 4, which still exists up by the remains of Home Farm Lodge at the north end of the airfield.
B-17G 42-97780 IW-R "Blue Bomb Express" was regularly parked on this particular dispersal from November 1944 at least, and as she was one of the aircraft I've identified as having a camera on board during the filmed mission this is likely to be her crew too.

All the best,
A couple of weeks ago now (6 Sept) Stevie and I visited Deenethorpe, Desborough and Harrington in the late summer sunshine.
It turned out to be a very enjoyable day and big thanks to Stevie for sharing his time and knowledge with me esp. as he was suffering with a bout of sciatica.
Here are a few of the pics I took from Deenethorpe.
Memorial on the main road.
