RAF Alconbury, England


Photos (2)




I belong to a group who were stationed at RAF Alconbury during the fifties and sixties. We exchange information on the internet and relive our old days at Alconbury. I personally did not know anyone in this group while stationed at Alconbury since we were assigned to different squadrons and/or at different times. For those assigned at Alconbury between 1956-58, I'm sure I came in contact with many of them on payday or during other financial matters. These photos were provided by members of this group. If you were stationed at RAF Alconbury and interested in joining this group of Alconburians, please contact Bob Green.

Update: Thanks to this group, I recently made contact with Richard Kelly. We both were assigned to Base Finance.

Note:
The Alconbury Little Theatre Guild presents "Witness for the Prosecution" A Play in Three Acts by Agatha Christie, March 25 - 26, 1958, 1945 Hours. Provided by Richard Kelly, who was cast as Carter, Sir Wilfrid's Chief Clerk.
Kelly was stationed at RAF Alconbury 1955 - 58 and assigned to Base Finance.

The Elms Restaurant opened in 1957 across from the Tech Site gate. I was there on opening night with music provided by a Country/Western Band from the base. Previously named Alconbury House and served as Operation Headquarters during WWII.

A bit about RAF Chelveston history. I was TDY at this base in 1958 assisting T/Sgt Bailey with the semiannual transition of military pay records.
