Archaeology Notes

NS33NE 41 centred 355 352

A small grass airfield used for advance training for the Normandy Landings. The autumn of 1943 saw the reconstruction of the main runway at Dundonald. On September 2 1944 the station was placed on a care and maintainance basis. On 1 August 1945 the airfield officially closed although the site was retained by the Army. It is now farmland, though the runways can still be traced in the fields.
