    Default Auberive-sur-Suippe Airfield

    Hi,

    In November 1939, member of the Royal Engineers began working on clearing and making a runway on a satelite aerodrome. Does anyone know the location of this?

    TIA

    Hi Steve,

    ...The two squadrons formed 75 Wing under G/C Wann, whose HQ was at Auberive, with Mourmelon-le-Grand as a satellite, and 88 Squadron moved there on the 12th. ...
