RAF Sopley & RAF Wartling in 1952
Written by Ron James ( TAFF )Travelled to working site at RAF Sopley , from domestic site at RAF Ibsley , & within a few minutes we were all hurried away to a field nearby to guard one of the first of the `V BOMBERS` ( A Valiant ) which had crashed . I was armed with a broken piece of tree branch. What exactly happened I still have no idea .Rumour was that they cut their engine (s) and could not restart. Another was that in restarting the engine (s) exploded.
