Earlier this month I got to visit RAF Cosford which is, with Hendon, part of the RAF Museums and hold a very interesting collection of aircraft, and military vehicles covering both world wars and the Cold War era.

Having visited Hendon several times, Cosford made for an interesting and personally evocative visit, holding many types within its collection that compliments the former museum.

My father was with a US Air National Guard unit that flew Canberras when I was growing up. Years later, when they had transitioned to tankers, they went to northern England one summer for two weeks training, and he brought me back a tea towel with pictures of 617 Squadron.

Great photos and stories!

What unit, Grelber? I was with a the 190th DSEG (KS ANG) when they were flying Canberras, and we were about the last.

OP, thank you very much. Yes, "Strange to see the vehicles of one's youth in a museum." My last visit to Fort Huachuca for the Advanced NCO Course, the school sergeant-major addressed the class. "How many of you have a three-quarter ton truck on your military drivers license?" It was a senior NCO class. Lots of hands went up. "Well, I just got back from the Military Intelligence Museum. Like to guess what they have on display?"

Have you done the Battle of Britain Bunker yet?
