Burderop was the largest and main hospital in england at the time, everyone came there.

I was born on 19 Dec 1952 at what is listed at the time as 5th Hospital Group APO 147 Wroughton, Wiltshire. Another form indicates the birth location as United States Air Force Hospital, Burderop Park, Chisledon Highworth, Swindon, England.
At that time, my Father was stationed at either RAF Blenheim Crescent in Ruislip, Middlesex, or where ever the 136th Communications Security Squadron USAF was located. Are the two hospitals one-in-the-same?
Since my Father's station was in Ruislip, I wonder why was I birthed way over in Swindon? Was is due to hospital overload because of the Great London Smog of December 5, 1952?

I was also stationed at Holme upon Spaulding Moor and Full Sutton, and #rd AF HDGS in Londeon and the Dental Laboratory in Eastcote
