    Default Airfield Maps - Methwold and Skellingthorpe

    As above, I've got a couple of airfield maps that I've recently recovered from the darkest recesses of my filing cabinet. Both detailing the airfields as they were in WW2, they came from (I believe) the RAF Museum and were part of the reprints done by "After the Battle". A4 when folded, they open up to about four times that size.

    Free to a good home, drop me a PM with your "snail mail" address if you want one / both of them, and I'll get them in the post.

    Thanks Nick. I've got about 3 lever arch folders of documents to get shot of here, all non-1 Group stuff that I've collected over the tears, "K" Reports, E&E Reports, and the such. So long as whoever gets them all can make some use of them, they've gone to a good home. I don't want to flood the board with them lest Jagan and the team get the hump, so I'm just popping bits and pieces up occasionally. Plus, the cost of postage is a big hit if I advertise them all at once!!

    Great website by the way Nick, I've just had a quick look around it. Noting also you're from Surrey, I hope the flooding hasn't affected you too badly...

    All the best,

    Greg

    Hi Greg,

    I am very interested in the Methwold map, due to its 149 Sqn connection. Please contact me at alanDOTfraserATstirlingpilot.org.uk
