I'm looking for some information with regards to RAF Kirknewton near Edinburgh. I'm trying to source the airfields Pundit Code, that being the two letter airfield identifier code that would have been marked next to the signals square.

My Google search has not been too successful, so wondered if anyone would have personal knowledge or perhaps access to some historical information.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Alan, it was KK according to Britain's Military Airfields 1939-45 by David J. Smith (page 134).

Hi Mothminor,

This is fantastic, thank you ever so much - thought I had drawn a blank on this one.

Best regards,

Alan

Confirm that 'KK' is correct. Some airfields had more than one throughout history and some IDs were duplicated, but from my master list Kirknewton only had one and 'KK' was unique.
Plan A is always more effective when the problem you are working on understands that Plan B will involve the use of dynamite :twisted:
