    Default RAF Sculthorpe. Jan 10.


    RAF Sculthorpe was a very large Ex Bomber Command Base, 4 miles west of Fakenham in West Norfolk. Taken over by the Americans in WW2 eventually flying B29s then Super Sabres from here. American personnel numbered over 10,000!,...

    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'
