Ramsbury at a very rough guess but it could be any one of a number

Greenham Common would have been occupied by the U.S.A.A.F. at the time these images were taken.

The station in question is closer to Greenham than Colt.

There is a clue in the presence of the other types parked around as well in various stages of undress.
No not Langley.

It looks a lot like an MU given all the various makes models and marks in between.

Lyneham, Aston Down, etc.

If so I must call "Open House" as I am travelling in the colonies!!

"Wokka, Wokka" would suggest RAF Odiham but that must be much too obvious

Looking at the architecture of that building top left, I'm inclined to guess Germany - Gutersloh? (I think 18 Sqdn used to be based there and they've got wokka machines.)

Mel!!!
Welcome back!
I was getting worried as we haven't heard from you for a while.
It's Odiham,
Post D-Day when it was an aircraft repair and support depot.
You have control : )
