Boreham Airfield

A Memory of Boreham

I lived on the airfield from 1950 to 1956 and I remember it well. We lived in nissen huts that had been used by the Americans during the war. I attended Boreham school and we had to get on a Boons bus to get there. Has anyone got any old photos of the former village school? The huts were draughty and damp but we had electricity. The whole site was surrounded with corn fields where we used to play and build dens out of the bales of straw. We moved to a cottage in 1956 and it was a luxury. After that I went to Great Leighs school.
