The picture above kindly supplied by David Bolton show a Home Guard group back in 1943 and left a picture of his grandfather also David Bolton who worked on the camp. David explains "My mother, Clara Bolton and my aunt, Amy Betts were both air raid wardens in the Mile Road area.
My grandfather, David Bolton worked on RAF Cardington as the call up had turned him down as being “too old” (ex 1st World War) when he volunteered to go to war again. However, because of his mechanical skills they asked him to work at Cardington, which he did for the duration.
My mum and aunt were called to Cardington one day for a group photo of all the wardens. I have always assumed this photo to be the one taken that day, taken in front of the huts that used to be (I think) at the side or back of the main hangers".
