The USAAF/USAAC/USAF


Anyone have a connection with any of the bases of Suffolk that either were in USAAF/USAF/USAFE or worked as a civilian on base?

RE: The United States Air Force


 I was at Ben****ers with the 92 TFS 81st TFW,was crew chief on F101,then we got F 4's loved both acft.
I arrived at Ben****ers in Nov .1962,was a very cold winter for me,I had just come from Ariz. My family arrived in England in Feb 1963,we lived at mile hill just outside of Sax.
Rented a cottage from a Mr.Bush.The cottage was just below the call box at top fo the hill.
In 1965 our second son was born at Ben****ers  hosp.
Used to go to Middleton Bell pub,Joe Shackles was owner,I think he called his wife Queenie,has son Joey.
Loved those fish and chips.
Left England in 1966.Went back in 2006 to London.
Have two friends who stayed in England,are in Ipswich.
