Times Gone By

There is a wealth of historic memorabilia out there among our members/former colleagues.  This includes some superb photographs, often bringing back many memories of past exploits and colleagues with whom we have long lost contact.

Unfortunately, much of this material tends to be stored out of sight and often forgotten.  Occasionally, material is loaned to our Association with permission to publish on our website.  Accordingly, this new webpage has been created and will inevitably grow in time.

Material may include little or no information, so readers are invited to contribute and assist us in filling in the gaps.  The CONTACT US page may be used for this or John Cox can be contacted direct.

If you have any interesting material, particularly photographs we would love to see it.  If you are happy for us to publish it on our website, we will first scan it and then return all original material if you wish to retain it.  Needless to say, we cannot guarantee publishing all received material.

The Fire Service College site was once a busy operational RAF airfield.  This illustrates the main street in the centre of the village in May 1944, prior to the invasion of France on “D” day.
