WW2 Battle Headquarters
WW2 Battle Headquarters
Most WW2 aerodromes had a Battle Headquarters (BHQ) - all built to a similar design and commonly situated somewhere on the edge of the airfield - which could be used to co-ordinate the defence of the airfield in the event of a land or air attack. The BHQ at RAF Thorpe Abbotts for instance > Link comprises several small brick-built rooms - some with small windows > Link for passing information between the plotting and communications rooms. There is commonly also an above-ground observation post with all-around viewing apertures and a bomb-proof concrete cap. The BHQ at Bexwell is flooded and hence inaccessible. This is a view from the entrance.
