RAF Fighter Command use[edit]

Are we sure that 196 and 299 squadrons were assigned to Fighter Command, seems a bit incredible to me. Rob 12:30, 24 October 2006 (UTC) Strange thing, the nuclear weapons storage clutches seem to have been totally demolished in recent years! Anyone know why?

Name Change[edit]

Im reasonably sure this base is now know as MDP Wethersfield (in recognition of its transfer to the MOD Police), not RAF Wethersfield. I loathe to make changes though.

Peace Movement at Wethersfield[edit]

On one occasion the annual Aldermaston March (CND) to Trafalgar Square (London) started from Thaxted, passing Wethersfield. Later there was a 24-hour silent (in the manner of Quakers) Peace Vigil outside the USAF base, which was presumed to be a nuclear bomber airfield. The Committee of 100 had proposed to sit on a runway, and two people were imprisoned, although this civil disobedience protest had not happened.

My Mother was at RAF Wethersfield. I have photographs of her at the airfield and a copy of the Christmas 1944 Dinner Menu. Is this of interest? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Martindresch (talkcontribs) 16:16, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
