To begin with tours were unaccompanied and the only individual to have a Quarter was the CO. Even he did not get an RAF Quarter - there were none. He occupied an AMWD (Air Ministry Works Department) Quarter which was lent to the RAF. Very few people had cars and, when the station opened in 1957, severe petrol rationing brought on by the Suez crisis, was a recent memory.
All of the photographs in this section belong to David Goodall (Saxa 1959-61) and I am grateful for his permission to use them. They were all taken on camp during his tour. (Left click to enlarge)
