Sorry Chevvron cannot answer your query.

According to Graham M Simons (Airfield focus 80 Bovingdon) the Royal Air Force based communications squadrons continuously at the airfield until 1969, the first arriving from Northolt in July 1947. The USAF arrived with the 7531st Air Base Squadron in May 1951 and were present until 1962.

At the risk of massive thread drift were you lucky enough to be a passenger on 'The Chesham Flyer' when it was hauled by steam?

I can recall several such journeys on this pretty Metropolitan branch line when I was a child. No problems with Power Cuts then!
