    Talking Hello from Bury

    Hi all,

    Having come across the former airfield that was RAF Cranage 1939-1945 [active runways] through to 1957 [assorted use] a couple of years ago, I set about looking into its history and through the help of some amazing people I'm slowly but surely putting a web site together. I thought it was time I joined this excellent forum as my knowledge of airfields etc. is only that which I have gleaned in the last couple of years and I always need help. If anyone does have a look at my site, and spots errors then please feel free to let me know, I am by no means an expert, out of respect for those who have gone before me I just want to help tell the story of what happened at a little airfield in Cheshire.

    I'm looking forward to chatting to people and hopefully making a few friends along the way.

    Cheers

    Craig

    Hi Craig, Welcome to the forum. Must admit that I've never heard of RAF Cranage before, but I wish you good luck with your research in to this airfield. Do you have any photograph's to post-up? Like your link !

    Thank you for the welcome.

    Unfortunately it seems that although the airfield played it part pretty well, all but a few remember or know of its existence. I'll be posting quite a few photo's on the site, there are several high resolution aerial shots over a few years already up, along with a site plan from 1945. In fact I've got another 60+ pages to update and upload over the next couple of weeks.

    USAF were there until 30th June 1957.

    Logistical and maintenance work and for administrative support for the American Army engineering units stationed there.

    They had been there since December 1954

    Welcome to AiX No2SoAN, being able to focus on one subject enables a full treatment of the history and it looks, from your website, as if you have done well so far.

    Welcome back Craig.

    Why did you register again rather than use your old nickname?

    @ Tigger - Hi mate, it's been so long since I was active on here I'd forgotten I'd already registered. I'm at that age I noticed your comments on the Q Site, have you managed to get in fora look round yet?

    @ REF - Thanks for the welcome. I'll be adding a link when I get home again this evening.

    @ PeterTheEater - Thanks for the comment. It looks like you were working as an Armourer at the same time as my father. He joined in 56/57 started at Halton and left the service around 1970 at Finningly. In between he went to Middleton St. George, Cypus, Germany, Leuchars, Singapore and Penang (where I popped up) then back home to the UK.
