List of US Air Force stations in UK WW2

Captain Barry J. Anderson, USAF, compiled this list of US bases and stations where US Army Air Forces personnel served in the United Kingdom during World War II. The list was put together post-war and there is no specific claim concerning dates, although '1945' appears in a description, so it appears the numbers apply to the whole of WWII.

Sample and explanation of terms:
101 High Wycombe (Camp Lynn) Buckinghamshire HQ 8 AF ; VIII Bomber Comd”

AAF Number: [101] the first number in each entry, this was the Army Air Forces station number assigned:
Name: [High Wycombe] The official name of the installation,
Alternative names appear in parentheses: [ (Camp Lynn) ]
Location: [ Buckinghamshire ] The majority of locations are counties in England; locations outside England are identified by county (if available) and country.
Principal Unit(s): [ HQ 8 AF ; VIII Bomber Comd ] Unit(s) assigned to the installation during World War II. Space considerations preclude identifying every unit assigned, so flying units predominate . When no unit designation is available, the command--usually Eighth or Ninth Air Force--is given. Where information is unknown, it is so indicated.

Re: List of US Air Force stations in UK WW2

May I also point out that Air Britain has published a CD with all bases used in Britain since 1912.

But then of course you also get a lot of "unneccessary details" such as RAF/RN bases, each unit using these bases, dates etc, etc

Very useful, if you ask me....

Hello Stig,
That sounds useful but I can't find the CD in the AB site, do you know if it is still available?

Then I'm afraid it is either out of stock or out of "print".

My apologies Bruce

It seems you were not connecting to the correct place.
Checking something else I was sort of passing by the AB page and lo and behold, the CD is still available, check here
I presume you are not a member (real pity) so you then have to pay the higher rate for non-members.
