Served at Leconfield on 19 squadron 1962/3 when the squadron was changing its Mk 6 Hunters for Mk 2 Lightnings. For moral and espri decour 19 was the tops. Leconfield was a great station the Station Commander was Dennis Crowley Milling one of Douglas Baders pilots on 242 sqn during the Battle of Britain and afterwards and there he was flying Lightnings.Leconfield was my first posting with Wrafs and 19 was the popular sqn with them too. 19 sqn airmen used to take over the NAAFI bar with all the tables pushed together and a big circle of guys and girls sitting around having a great time. In comparison 92 sqn which was the official RAF aerobatic sqn at the time and were a bunch of prima dona's never got a look in with the Waffs on the station. In fact the girls offered to wash and iron our shirts. Ive never known being so popular with girls before and never came across it again for the rest of my RAF career.AL.
