    Default 57OTU Eshott

    I am trying to get information on 57OTU and it’s time based at Eshott
    My mum was stationed there towards the end of the war having been a plotter at Uxbridge before that.
    Did the base ever host active fighter squadrons I thought I read somewhere that
    350 Belgian squadron had some links to Eshott
    many thanks for any help
