EGVW - icao code for an RAF Station?

Looking at my logbook I have an entry for EGVW. There is no current ICAO code EGVW...was this an old RAF airfield? Or did I misprint the code....

Pretty sure it was RAE Bedford - try sending a PM to Dunregulatin - he was there as an ATCO in the 80s.

Yes it was RAE Bedford; there was another Bedford airfield just to the east which was (I thinK) EGSB.
Thurleigh was also allocated to EGSV , but only for a short time prior to its closure; there was a plan to use it as an ovenigtht air freight operation but when they realised it would entail H24 operatrion, it moved to East Midlands.

Googling it took less than 30 seconds. http://www.world-airport-codes.com/u...ord-65123.html I entered I"CAO code EGVW" and up it popped. OK, us smartas*es get their own coats.
