Looks like Major(?) Jimmy Stewart at a USAAF base 'somewhere in England'?

Twochai, has the name correct, I understand (from local folklaw) that, because of his status, he visited a lot of local US bases, this pic is from his actual base ???? Keith.

I thought Jimmy Stewart was based at Tibenham. If not there, how about Chelveston?

Edited to add:

Why does it say my post was logged at 1347? It should read 2147!!

Or Hethel; he flew from both.

Other chap looks like Gen. Patrick Timberlake (BG Cdr) but I don't know why he'd be out of uniform.

Sorry for this delay people, work got in the way, I seriously hope I am not wrong with this, I have also read somewhere of him being based at Tibbenham, but due to the more often quoted fact that he was at "this" place I have always gone with it ? Also have been there and seen the display of photos of him there ! But this could all be "folk lore" (thanks for the spelling lesson) !

Edit .... Panic situation ! following my lapse from the forum, didn't read all of the posts and yes Tiger Mate is correct ! the photo is from Old Buckenham, where I understand he was based ? If this is not correct then I humbly apologise, as I said earlier I think he "did the rounds" whilst there ! Keith.

Bri, you are correct and I have just noticed that it has been done before.

However, in mitigation, I only checked the C's in Mel's list and didn't notice that it is in fact there under RAF Changi.

Mel, perhaps you could remove the prefixes from the list to avoid this kind of repetition?

If it helps, at the next update I will remove the RAF as a prefix and attach it at the end of the i.e. Changi (RAF), Singapore.

Mel,

Thanks. I think that would be very useful.

The "terminal" looks like Sywell, but that may have been a common design at the time.

A Gypsy and 2 Pusses. Aaah, de Havilland.
