At last I have found a reference to my cousin F/O Kenneth Ewins who died Dec 12th 1943 from 168 Squadron. Very many thanks for this.

I have a postcard photograph of my uncle the address is North Weald, the date on the photo is Dawn June 6th 1939, his name was Patrick Hall from Dublin, I would appreciate any information that would help me piece together his life with the RAF before he was killed June 1943.

I was stationed at North Weald from 1952 to 1954. Prior to my National Service I took an "aptitude test" at RAF Hornchurch to become a pilot however because I refused to sign on for five years it became a non starter. I have a few photographs that were taken during my stay in front of the old Guardroom with a group taken with the C.O. and W.O. in 1952. I immigrated to Canada in 1957 but still visit the UK every year. During a trip in 2006 my wife Jean and I stopped briefly at the main entrance war memorial and took a photograph of me with the Museum that was the C.O.'s residence in the background . In addition I have some photographs of Meteor IV that were part of the famous III squadron. Regards Keith Ward (former CPL. RAF Police)

I was so interested to find the Museum on the net. I was staioned at RAF North Weald and was demobed from there in 1955.The photos took me back to my days working in the Station Armoury, across from ASF, and we also had to go out to 601, 604 and 11 squadrons. When the amunition came in, we had to take it across the otherside of the airfield to the 'bomb dump' and load it into underground bunkers for safety. I am so pleased that the Museum exists.

Dear North Weald Airfield Being myself half English & half Norwegian (and a commercial pilot)I was wondering if any pilots based there during WW2 were called: Knudsen, Andersen, Andreassen?

I WAS MORE THAN GRATEFUL TO SEE THAT THE LAST "BULLDOG" TRAINER OF MY DEFUNCT SQUADRON COULD STILL FLY IN PEACE IN THE AIR OF UNITED KINGDOM AT THIS FORMER RAF AIRFIELD OF NORTH WEALD. MY UNIT, THE ROYAL HONG KONG AUXILIARY AIR FORCE WAS DISBANDED ON 1ST APRIL 1993 AND WITH IT THE HERITAGE OF THE "AIR FORCE"... THE DESCENDANT UNIT IS NOW CALLED THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT FLYING SERVICE BUT HAD NO LINEAGE TO THE FORMER SET UP OF A UNIT IN SIMILAR LINE TO THAT OF AN RAF SQUADRON..... "SEMPER PARATUS" WAS OUR MOTTO (WHICH MEANS "ALWAYS READY" AS WE USED TO DO SEARCH AND RESCUE AND MEDEVAC DUTIES...ALONGSIDE RAF SQUADRON IN HONG KONG BEFORE 1997...

So enjoyed todays visit. So much to see. Thank you for making it so interesting with the extra's. By the way having paid years membership - do you claim back tax as I am a tax paying person. As they say, "every penny counts". Good Luck with all your doing at the museum.
