An aerial view of the old field taken by the RAF on Jun 4th, 1963. Only a few remenants remain.
Another view taken at the same time as the one above except it shows more of the runways. Faint outlines of the hardstands can be seen and the Rose Court farm is still there.
A written description of the field at Glatton written in Dec 1st, 1944. I've been asked many times how many men were stationed at Glatton and till I saw this I could only guess. I see on that date there were 421 Officers and 2494 Enlisted men for a total of 2894.
A practice bomb suspended from a pole identifies the 749th Squadron area.
One of the many pubs in the Peterborough area.
