    Hi all,

    I will be very thankful if anybody can help me to solve the correct name of the above mentioned airfield as bot the internet and also the ORB o 1429 COTF stated both possibilities...

    TIA

    Jefford's "RAF Squadrons" lists as Woolfox Lodge and the road signpost on the A1 road shows Woolfox.

    Default "Woolfox"

    Hello Pavel

    Although you have it confirmed already as "Woolfox Lodge", I have been looking at the 61 Squadron ORB for January 1942 and it was definitely spelt "Woolfox".

    On the particular night I was looking at, there was a note to say that the aircraft that night had taken off from North Luffenham as the Woolfox runways were unserviceable due to a crashed aircraft.

    Regards
    Mark
