From the 423d Force Support Squadron, RAF Alconbury:

Paul Bellamy, archivist for the Airfield Research Group, presented a copy of "Keepers of the Keys" to the Base Library last week, on behalf of Alconbury veteran Bob Green.*

This fascinating and most welcome addition to our Alconbury Heritage Book Collection is the autobiography of Colonel Charles Clark, Commander of the 4th Tactical Depot Squadron at Alconbury when it reopened (1956-58). The Squadron's mission was to provide nuclear weapons in strike configuration within the European theatre.

*Bob Green served at RAF Alconbury as a radar repairman with the 10th Armament & Electrical Maintenance Squadron within the 10th Tactical Reconnaissance Wing, 1959-62.

Stop by the base library to read this riveting history of man and mission!

You can tell a builder from an archaeologist by the size of his trowel. Mine is a small one!

I was hoping we had a copy I could borrow!

Can we borrow the Base Library copy? :|

Are you sure REF, only I lent mine when we were in Blg.76 but I do not remember two copies ever. If you did then both are missing.
