Sign at the entrance to Boast's Industrial Park
Note the aircraft painted on the sign - it is a De Havilland Mosquito, which were flown from RAF Beccles. The site of this industrial park was the Mess site for the personnel stationed at RAF Beccles when it was an active airfield during WW2. A significant number of RAF buildings have survived here in light industrial use.

RAF Beccles/HMS Hornbill II
The station, which was locally always known as Ellough airfield, was the last to be built in Suffolk during the war and the most easterly aerodrome in wartime England. It was designated USAAF Station 132. The USAAF, however, had no use for the base and in the summer of 1944 it was transferred to RAF Bomber Command, and a few months later to Coastal Command.

The airfield was closed in 1945 and for some time the accommodation was used by the Royal Navy for training reservists and during this short period the airfield was designated HMS Hornbill II. See also: LinkExternal link
