- Benson Airfield -
This and BS0421 below are sketch maps drawn from memory by Jack Wheeler featuring that part of the airfield occupied by the KCB garage and cafe.
He remembers the first squadron of Fairy Battles landing at the airfield and totally distracting his Benson School football team, who were playing against St Johns School, Wallingford. Mr Bennett, the schoolmaster, had great difficulty getting the lads back to finish the match, so exciting was the event!
He also saw a Junkers 88 bomber joining in with the Fairy Battles doing "circuits and bumps"and sneakily dropping his bombs under their cover. Fortunately there were no casualties.
