Hi my father was stationed at church broughton that's how he met my mother she was nursing at derby at the time, then they moved to Cardiff,then stationed at Talbeny to name just a few places,then moved back to the midlands. He escaped Prague paying his way out,also payed for his friends who couldn't afford to pay, going from safe-house to safe-house and landed in France, he was a bomber pilot under bomber Harris and fought for this country.

        How long was he at Church Broughton ? I was looking at the nissen huts remains today. The hut bases are still there. I know the lower ranks used to sleep there. Have you ever visited the site ?
