Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. After spending a few days on exercise last week deceided to have a look on the internet to find any info about it's past life as an airfield, Sadly not a lot I can only find a bombing mission against it during WW2. As not alot of it's left apart from the runways and a few buildings some of which have English stenciled writing on them. The hanger we were using didnt look that tall enough to take a post war A/C..........any ideas or info on the place?
  2. Was bombed by 14 x B17 as a target of opportuinity on Mrch 21st 1945

    Probably captured by 4th Canadian Brigade in April 1945

    Isn't google marvellous!
  3. Cheers did find the bit about it being bombed as a secondary target but most kept repeating it's self
