Royal Air Force Acklington in 1948
written by john campbell



I was Posted to Acklington inEarly February 1948 just before very bad winter. And when the snow did arrive and how the Aircraft Hangars disappeared overnight.

A.nd we awoke in morning it was still pitch black outside, until one of my mates venturede to the door, and when he opened it the snow was up over the roof. So we managed to get to the ablutions to shower. Then we dug our way to the temporary mess where the night shift were still on duty, and we had the best breakfast ever

Then when things were sorted we were allocated various duties on snow clearance. But being a short ass I got the best job driving a snow blower with the aerials on the NAFFI to aim at. We managed to clear snow to enable us to get to regular mess by lunch time. Where the cooks did us proud with a great three course lunch. Well that's my memnories of Acklington John
