RAF Croft

A recent email suggests that RAF Croft was in the hands of the RAF in 1950 contrary to the description on our RAF Croft page.

The evidence is in the form of a Christmas Menu date 1950 shown below.

The menu was kindly scanned by Allan Hillman whose father was Cpl John (Jack) Hillman a pre-WWII regular (telephonist).  Jack met his wife in 1940 when she was a WAAF telephonist at HQ Balloon Command, Stanmore.

Allan was only a child when his family were processed through RAF Croft after returning from the Far East.
