Merely posting a video that i recorded at a show. I was not in kit or apart of the group in question just there on a day out and thought the ww2 bits may interest some on here... unfortunately i ran out of battery so couldnt record the ww2 battle but last years video is up too!

Apart from the noise element it looks good to me. Admittedly it is being acted out and not everyone seems sure of their roles, especially the WO, but it's a very good simulation

I never got to work on the plotting table at Buchan or anywhere else when i was in but I did get to work in many tracking and plotting rooms at places such as West Drayton, Saxa Vord etc and they were always very quiet. The loudest voice heard in most cases was the fighter controller talking to the interceptor pilots.

I also worked at RAF Neatishead as a fighter controller assistant and various other related duties. please see;

We did RAF Digby when it was first restored. An amazing museum and thoroughly enjoyable.

Lost touch with Mark who ran it back then,

Be very careful about loaning original items...also, please keep an eye out for :
*Still missing* Because some folks are devoid of an ounce of honesty or integrity.
Women's Navy Great Coat
Green floor length 1930s evening dress with sleeves set on net.
Blue and white rayon dress with peplum
Black velvet halter necked dress with silver shot thread skirt (may still have Harrods label in it) I have photos of all of these items and I know where they are in Scunthorpe, but would appreciate a nod if they come up for sale. [/color]

I intend to get there sometime this year K.

I was involved in plotting and telling in my days in the RAF, from 1973 to 1979, but never got to use a plotting table such as the one at Digby. We used computer driven displays and perspex "totes" and chinagraph! Writing backwards is not as difficult as you might imagine!

Cheers.

An ex WAAF taught us how to work the table, so that when the veterans came in the room was as it would have been in their time. It was excellent and a real priveledge to work with the lady.

I noticed that when I was last in Scopwick, there was an advert for an open day, but it was already very out of date.
