My grandfather Wesley C.C. Stratton (961022) was posted to North Weald on 14/9/40 from ETS Cranwell. On 24th July of 1941 he was admitted to hospital in Uxbridge with head injuries, then transferred to military hospital in Oxford 28th July, where he died on 31/7/41. I know he was a Leading Aircraftsman when he died, and he was AC2 when he arrived in North Weald. From his service record, I can’t see which squadron he was attached to, and it would be lovely to get some idea of what he was doing there. I would also be grateful for any further information about the cause of his injuries. Any help you can give in pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

I was interested in the link to the airfield Piggotts Farm. My uncle, Wilfred (Bill) Edwards, learnt to fly there in the 1930s and around the same time took a party of employees to Clacton by air. This must be a first! During WWII my father, Reg. Edwards, was a Special Constable at North Weald airfield.

My grandfather, Kare Herfjord, was a Spitfire pilot with 332 (Norewegian) Squadron based at North Weald during WW2. If you have any pictures or information on him, I would love to see it.

My Father was stationed at RAF North Weald in the early 50s. He was H.E.C. Wakefield (Cyril) and by the time he retired in 1959 (stationed at Bomber Command High Wycombe) he was a senior officer of the MT section. Anyone remembering him should contact me please.

I was stationed at RAF North Weald 1957-1958. I was a medic working in the sick quarters. I vividly remember the jab parades for overseas postings which occasionally resulted in big guys passing out ! I was lucky enough to meet Roger Topp( of Black Arrows fame) on a few occasions. A great guy. My memories of North Weald are very happy.
