RAF Waterbeach, in 1953 written by Pete "Smudge" Smith
1953 wasn’t too bad really. First the floods on the East Coast and we were sent to Felixstowe filling sandbags. A thoroughly soaking experience. Then April was ’volunteered’ for Coronation duties, did some training at Waterbeach but then sent to RAF Odiham for final training. After we were sent to Kensington Gardens, quite near the Round Pond, frequented by "Ladies of the Night"
Put under canvas whilst there until route lining duties on the day. Just outside Selfridge’s, quite another wet experience but a memorable one.
