The site is still running, despite an absent owner. I'm told it can keep going as long as it is used!! There is no way of transferring ownership as the original owner is absent and we don't have the passwords or name to transfer from. So, make the most of it chaps.

It is good to share memories of Locking. I enjoyed my stay there in the autumn of 1955 on the ground radar mechs course. The winter was cold but in the new year 1956 I was posted to Singapore so a real contrast.
Best regards to everyone

Was at Locking Mar 1980 - Jun 1981 on DTC17, and had a great time between Aug 1990 & Jan 1994 there in 1(T) as an Instructor. Of the 17 years I served in total in the RAF, at least 5 were at Locking!

1984 Locking. Type 80 training set me up for some lovely postings. Buchan first then as I was one of the last T80 experts they thought it would be a good idea to send me to Saxa Vord. Seem to remember that prompted my PVR.

Hi Martin
Good luck with this new site. It's a great idea to start a "general" site for the old place. Many of us were trained at Locking, so there should be quite a lot of interest !!
Many happy memories remain for me but sadly no photos I'm afraid.
