WWII Hampshire - RAF Beaulieu airfield: pundit code letters
RAF Beaulieu's wartime airfield identification letters "BL" can still be seen today located in front of where the control tower once stood. Known as a pundit code, they enabled airborne aircraft to identify the airfield they were flying over. For night flying operations they were supplemented by Pundit Beacons using red lamps that automatically flashed the two-letter Pundit Code in Morse.
