    Default RAF Cambel

    Hi all,

    I would like to ask if anyone knows airfield RAF Cambel?
    I was told that this place was somewhere in the triangle among towns Cirencester, Fairford and Swindon.

    TIA

    Hi Pavel,

    Could it be either Camp Hill or Campbeltown? Do you have more details?

    Regards

    Hi chaps,

    sorry but unfortunately I have no more information.
    This comes from one book and there is only this. It is mentoned as a training airfield where the pilot was posted for some kind of pilot training when he as an allied airman arrived to UK in 1941.

    Anyway thanks for your ideas, I think it may be probably RAF Kemble..

    Default RAF Kemble

    Pavel
    Kemble is still used, mainly as a civilian airfield .Google has some information or look at ---
    www.kemble.com.

    In the 1940s there were air training bases in the area including South Cerney & Long Newton.There is a small CWGC area in the cemetery at Cirencester.
