RAF Kirton in Lindsey - Lincolnshire, England ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
It appears to have been an RAF habit (inherited from the RFC to name its bases after the nearest railway station, possibly to simplify the process of issuing Rail Warrants to personnel posted there. By that token, the site should be RAF Kirton Lindsey, Kirton Lindsey being the name of the nearby railway station constructed in 1849. No.255 Squadron's Operations Record Book (ORB) consistently uses that version of the name. So does the airfield's separate ORB, from the date of the site's WWII creation (15 May 1940) through to May 1941. After mid-1941 and the departure of No.255 Squadron, use of RAF Kirton-in-Lindsey. Kirton in Lindsey begins to appear in the site's own records – eventually dominating.

On 25 March 2013 it was announced to dispose of the airfield and technical facilities with only accommodation remaining. The airfield used to host No. 1 Air Control Centre (1ACC), the RAF’s only deployable ground-based early warning and air control radar unit, which was parented by RAF Scampton

The Station has had a varied selection of personnel occupying it, the RFC, RAF, USAAF, and before becoming an RAF Station for the last time it was the home of the Royal Artillery Regiment responsible for operating the Rapier sam. The Station finally closed in 2013.
