Royal Air Force Greatworth

962 Signals Unit

2012 Reunion.

Despite all the messing around finding a different venue, the reunion was still a very enjoyable event. The Red Lion supplied a splendid lunch, served in a great atmosphere, in a fine old English pub. Those of us who were early enough, had a grand beer garden to wait in, the car parking was very adequate and indicated just how popular The Red Lion is, by being near full by midday (Wednesday, Midweek?)!! The visit to The Camp of one time RAF Greatworth is a short drive to the south over a straight forward route. We didn't see so much of it this year as I hadn't done very much to organise the camp visit this year, but those nice camper folk made us very welcome indeed. 


I have posted some photos of this years visit and have also included some of `the cabin' and the remains of the original nissen hut accommodation site, which this can now be definitely taken to be. All that is missing is the accurate location of the CO's house that was contemporary to it.
