I live locally to Henstridge airfield, formerly called HMS dipper during WW2, and it was a sattelite to todays Yeovilton, headqurters of the Fleet Air Arm. (HMS Heron).

Does anyone have any pics and further info on this now semi disused airfield? I know some of the residents of the field drank in the local pub "The Swan" at Stalbridge just down the road but they have no memorabilia.

The airfield is now only open to small craft and microlites as there is very little left that is still useable. It is also the base of the Somerset and Dorset air ambulance.

Whirlwind.
