    Is this now the Bushey Hall Golf Club? Is the today's main building at the golf club the one that was used as HQ for the 8th Air Force?

    The main building, Bushey Hall, was demolished some years ago. I have some photos of the remaining buildings that I took in 2009 somwhere, I'll post them up when I find them.

    In October 2006 i went here to a re-enactment day called 'Operation Ajax' It was brilliant, loads of vehicles, stalls, exhibits and Living History people were there. I also remember a model railway club having a hut there as well as a nissen hut made out as a 1940s house.

    I used to attend Queens School and can remember Bushey Hall that was at the end of Queens Schools playing field. In the 70's when I attended Queens School, Bushey Hall was a school for American Forces children.

    I'm at bushey almost every other weekend, theres a great museum there now, a 1940's house,a childrens petting farm etc a lot of the original buildings are still there although quite a few are no go areas due to them being unsafe. I'm good friends with curator of the museum and he hads worked tirelessly to restore a few of the buildings to they're original state, i definitely recommend a visit

    It seems that there is some confusion over Bushey Hall and Bushy Park - note the difference in spelling.

    Bushey Hall was the location of VIII Fighter Command, whereas HQ 8 AF was originally located on the north side of Bushy Park which is to the north of Hampton Court. The situation was complicated by the redesignation of HQ 8 AF as HQ USSTAF in 1944. HQ VIII Bomber Command was the redesignated as HQ 8 AF.
