1963 RAF Warboys

I have uploaded a group photograph (from Martin Gorner) of 257 Squadron personnel taken at RAF Warboys in 1963 where Martin was stationed. A Mk1 Bloodhound missile is in the background.  Here.

257 Squadron stood up on 1 July 1960 at RAF Warboys as an air defence unit using Bloodhound Mk1 missile. The squadron stood down here on 1 December 1963. (see the 257 Squadron Royal Air Force page. Apparently no accommodation was available Warboys so and the squadron personnel were parented by RAF Upwood (see the ruins).

Warboys is yet another derelict site.
