RAF Wethersfield

Although used exclusively by the USAAF and USAFE, apart from the last few months of WW2, and a short closure post WW2 it had an ATC unit that was located in the UK though not a UK provided ATC. I’ve put this post in to flag the US presence, because as a teenager in the early 196os I used to visit my grandmother in Braintree and got to know many of her neighbours who served with the 20th TFW.  Also how can I resist an E Type with an Essex Reg – OO7
