Unit History: RAF Makerias

RAF Makerias

Added on 07/07/2011

303 Signals Unit was based at RAF Makerias up in the Radfan mountains.  It was an RAF mobile radar unit looking out for bandits coming over the Radfan mountains and probably heading for RAF Khormaksar.  The RAF did a tactical retreat to RAF Khormaksar because they were getting nightly attacks and the Radar units were in danger of being rendered unserviceable.  I joined 303SU in March 1965 when it was located over the other side of RAF Khormaksars runway.
