for those of us of a certain age Lydd is synonymous with  Garry Halliday

One thought on “EGMD Lydd (Ferryfield)”

  1. I remember Garry Halliday but I wsn’t aware it was filmed at Lydd; I thought it was at Heathrow where certainly the opening sequence with the radar scanner was filmed.
    Never visited Lydd but in 1958, I attended a school camp not far away in an old army camp at St Mary’s Bay on Romney Marsh. There were Superfreighters droning over about every 20 min even at night time keeing us awake.
