I had a lift back to my b and b with a colleague who is always interesting and bright company.
He and I got to chatting about an Airfield that was on the way, and on the spur of it we decided to endure the rain and a five minute trudge through a field to visit it.
This is it.
It is the airfield at Tempsford and every SOE flight into occupied Europe left from here, dropping women and men in their twenties into Europe to support Resistance cells. They were briefed and armed at the barn.
Poignant stuff with a memory to many, including Violette Szabo.
