Memories of Bassingbourn

Airwork Service Raf Bassingbourn

I worked for three years at RAF Bassingbourn for Airwork Services and enjoyed my time in the village, plenty of pubs in those days, one was just outside. Does any one remember which pub featured in a film about the war called either 'The Battle of Britain', 'The Dambusters' or 'Reach for the Sky'?
