Shortstown Heritage

My thanks must go to Mr Parsons for this fascinating glimpse of life back in 1947 - his experience would have been typical of the thousands of young men who passed through the camp all those years ago - yet looking at the site today we would never know this. For this reason the memories of Mr Parson are very precious as little seems to be recorded locally of these years. Thanks must also go to the RAF Music Services Association who kindly put me in touch with Mr Parsons.
