    Default RAF Hornchurch, 1940

    Does anyone have, or can anyone direct me to, a good image of RAF Hornchurch around the period of the Battle of Britain, please? This could be an aerial photograph, or any other image giving a feel for the layout of the airfield.

    Thanks

    Somewhere I believe I have a map of the airfield which was printed/published by After The Battle.I am not sure what date is on the map either, but I know it has some great detail.

    Let me know if you want me to take some pics of it to send to you in due course (that's providing I can remember in which box it might be!)

    Regards

    Andy

    Hey Andy

    Thanks, that would interest me very much. Yes, please, a couple of images and copyright data would be great, please.

    Thanks

    Have you tried Richard C. Smith who wrote at least 3 books on Hornchurch for Grub Street including Hornchurch Scramble Vol. 1 1915 - the Battle of Britain.

    Hi Steve

    As long as the aerodrome is out of current service use by a few years then the layout plans of the general area/technical/domestic sites are held at DoRIS, RAF Museum.

    They will print off A1/A2/A3 prints for a small fee and will be able to agree a commercial reproduction cost on request.

    All buildings are numbered on the layout plans and listed with building construction type/AM drawing number and function.

    Regards
    Ross

    Thanks Ross, I'll try the RAF Museum; I should have thought of them first! I'll contact them and see if they can help me.

    Thanks for the suggestion, John; I'll try him if the RAF Museum can't help me.
