Combined Mess

Beags, it does seem that all Living In Officers, WOs and SNCOs do really live at Kirton in Lindsey.

RAF Scampton and Kirton

I must say I wouldn't relish the 14 mile drive each way every day on that great Lincolnshire road the A15!

Better than the road between Horsham St Faiths MQ and RAF Neatishead!

Of course if the crash gate exit onto Middle Street was opened, you could avoid the A15 altogether. The B1398 can often be a much easier drive than the A15!

Beags is correct and that is how it was done in the early 70s when a large number of Scampton bodies were quartered at Hemswell. Nip down the back road and in through D dispersal crash gate. It was also very handy for a couple of lunchtime pints in "Mr. Bells"
