The original hangars are now brick clad.  The two pairs of hangars shown were those occupied by the repair shop and by Flights A, B and C. Original MT and storage buildings are at the far end also now brick clad.

The original wooden interiors remain the same.

The farm cottages at Hainault Farm

The entrance and guard house.

The original administration buildings

(Note: On a recent visit to Hainault Farm (2003), the administration, guard and entrance buildings had been torn down. Sad to see this part of history gone!)

In Memoriam
I never knew George.  He perished as a young man while defending his homeland.  He had so much to live for.  His death must be counted among the millions of other young men on both sides who gave their lives in that senseless war.  And still it goes on. Will man never learn?

In Conclusion;
This has been a labour of love.  But it has only been made possible by the ever kind and helpful support of WWI historians John Barfoot, Frank Cheesman, Trevor Henshaw, Stuart Leslie and of course the patient staff at the Public Records Office at Hendon.
