My minds eye says yes, with the 'Fields' written large across it.
The hangar at LHR was a three curvard arched roof with FIELDS AIRCRAFT SERVICES LIMITED in large red letters. It was built originally for Hunting Clan in 1953. Demolished and replaced by a modern facility if I remember correctly around 1986. It no longer exists as the expansion of Terminal 4 eastwards meant that the latter hangar was demolished.
