Camp memorial preparation

Before Barratts formally handed over the site to Wokingham Borough Council, they needed to fulfill the terms of the original building planning permission, which included the provision of a memorial to the camp.

It was envisaged that a flat stone will be set into the ground within the Eclipse Verge in front of the lodge with an inscription "To commemorate the site of HQ Flying Training Command, RAF Shinfield Park, 1940-1968".

Use the menu above to view the letter to residents (2 pages) laying out options for the area of the memorial, pertinent maps, a photo and an HQFTC crest. Thanks to Angus Ross, Parry Batth and Doreen Couzens for their interest, efforts and in particular, making this information available to the Webmaster.
