David Hedgecox, whose late father was Gordon, left a comment on this post about life in CSE in 2021 on how much his father would have enjoyed them.
“His name was Gordon Hedgecox, and he died three years ago. He was with 192 Squadron at Watton from, I think, late 1951 to 1953 and told similar grim stories of the Watton Green accommodation. He drove us past the nissen huts when on a family holiday in the early 1970s – it was obviously a memorable time! On the squadron he worked on radar on the Lincolns and Washingtons. He was de-mobbed in 1953 before the Coronation Review at RAF Odiham, but visited that event and saw some of his ex-colleagues there. I still have a few photos of squadron members at Watton in front of a Lincoln and Washington.
My Dad is in the Lincoln and Washington ones, but is not in the smaller group Canberra photo as far as I can tell. I think he was a Senior Aircraftsman, and specialised in radars and he mentioned H2S a lot.”
