I've put a similar post on Woodhall Spa & ask ask here in case more folks come here.

I'm making a RAF Woodhall Spa for a local museum. The Woodhall Spa RSP records the watch office as 15956/40 with a 7344/41 addition. I was hoping someone might have a picture of it or be able to tell me what it looked like?
My search so far has not been fruitful. Even Paul's Control Towers was devoid of a pic.....
Thanks.

Drawings 15956/40 plus 7344/41 is a Watch Office for Bomber Satellite Stations Type A with the addition of a PBX to the outside of the operations room.

See Grafton Underwood for a similar example.

Oh...I thought it was a 17658/40 Watch Office. It looks like the one at Cark in Cumbria, & Ibsley near me, had one.

Correction, Fearn's is to 17658/40 & 4520/41.
Just variations of the basic 1940 Watch Office for Fighter Satellite Stations either way. ;).
