Just wondering, having lived in nearby Chesham from 1948 (when I was born) to 1971, when was Bovingdon handed back to the Air Ministry by the Ministry of Aviation?
In my recollection, there were alway things like Meteors flying round in the early '50s; I remember them because that 'wailing ' beat of the engines used to frighten me when I was about 3 or 4 years old and I used to run indoors to hide until the day my older brother shut the back door and wouldn't let me in!
