RAF Ingham 1943

These pictures come courtesy of Ross Jackson from Loomis CA, USA. They are part the album of Mabel Hackney, a WAAF member who was stationed at that base in Lincolnshire.


The above and two photographs below show the crew (all standing) of the BH-V, HE480, from left: Sgt T. Jarzab (bombadier); F/Lt W. Wojtulewicz (pilot); F/Lt T. Dymek (navigator); P/O R. Wilczynski and P/O P. Krol gunners. Sitting second from left I recognized a mechanic Czeslaw Olszewski.




Tractors like the one shown above were generally used throughout the RAF bases for moving aircraft and bomb trolleys.


Above: The BH-T, JA 129. This aircraft was ferried to the unit toward the end of 1943.
