I went on detachment from lyneham for the suez do 1956. The hastings dropped the Paras.
We were in a tented compound, not very comfortable,
thankfully we were only there a few weeks and landed back at Lyneham Christmas Eve.

NORTHOLT.
 
 
 
The following was sent to me by David Tennant, who as he says, was at Northolt,
in the 50's.

Have found a picture on the Web of the Northolt control tower as it existed in the mid 1950s, I spent many hours in the room accessed via the door shown. The room housed the Station's VHF receivers and an emergency battery operated Transmitter/Receiver (ex aircraft) in case of a power failure. The room also housed a master clock with a very loud tick which sent signals to other clocks in the tower.The station transmitters at that time were situated behind the small married quarters opposite the main gate and guard room right up against the railway tracks.
