My Father was chief Signals Officer at Castle Bromwich Aerodrome; F\O Joe Hughes. He started the war as a A/C 2nd class Wireless OP. His postings were Oxford , Abingdon, Leghton Buzzard and several places I have no knowldge of. But I do know he was in control of 3 other airfields signals from CBAF. He finished his War service there, but before he left the Service I visited there at an open day and saw the first Whittle Jet plane, it was all white I remember; I was 10.
