Another cartoon drawn by one of the men on base in '44/'45.
Connongton Chapel tower.
Another view of the field from the air showing the Connington Chapel and Castle in the foreground.
A great aerial view of the Squadron areas with Connington Lane running from right to left. The 751st area where I lived is shown at the lower right. (I can even see hut 24 where I lived). The top right is the 749 Squadron area and in the center is the enlisted men's and officer's mess.
Another aerial view of the compound that many of you will find familiar. Running from top to bottom is Connington Lane with the 751st Squadron area in the upper right and the 749th in the upper left. The mess facilities are in the center with the base hospital in the foreground. The Castle and Chapel can be plainly seen in this view.
A view of the 457th control tower before the addition of the 'watch' office on the roof.
