Coddington Camp

A Memory of Coddington

I lived at the RAF camp at Coddington back in the late 60s early 70s.  Does anyone else remember the fun we used to have at the Club discos. Or hanging around in the woods at the back, there was an old disused tennis court, but we managed to have some fun playing there in the long, long summers.  The local villagers were so friendly too - I made good friends that I am still in touch with now.  I went back to the Camp a couple of years ago - it is now a "posh" housing development.

A memory shared by Margaret Geoge , on Oct 21st, 2008.
