Left:- Gen. Curtis Lemay being honoured at South Ruislip. For better protection from German fighters, he came up with the idea of the "box" formation for the U. S. Aircraft when bombing Nazi Germany during WW II.


The pictures to the left and right are of "staff" and friends at the base, are you on one of them???? The one to the left was taken at Douglas house, and that to the right at The Tithe Farm. 











Does anyone know what happened to the model ship??? It used to sit in a glass case inside of the club entrance.    




Above, a picture of the base from 1994

Style of coach. Not taken at S Ruislip

My father (Ex Dunkirk Veteran) worked at the USAF base in the late 1950's and drove one of the Observation Coaches. I have attached one of 3 photographs of my dad during that time. The person in the middle is my dad (Douglas Leonard Holman) known around the base as "Pop" or Len. My father died in 1965 so memories / stories start to fade, but I do remember my dad bringing the coach home one day and I went inside (that's about it.. well I could have only been 4 - 5 years old at the time. I have found a couple of letters of commendation for my dad and safe driver awards for two years.
