In researching a short period of the Bomber Command campaign in 1941 and 1942 I thought I would share my research on the web. My interest stems from having had a lifelong interest in aviation and having served 21 years in the Royal Air Force. The snapshot in history I have taken, is a sample of the activity that took place at a 5 Group airfield in Rutland. The airfield is RAF North Luffenham and it’s satellite airfield Woolfox Lodge. The period is 1941 to 1942 when a number of squadrons operated from the grass airfield. 61 Squadron operated Hampdens and converted to Manchesters. 144 Squadron RAF and 408 RCAF Squadron operated Hampdens. Hampdens were operated at RAF Cottesmore at an operational training unit – that might be another project!
