SSQ – The View from Outside

sick quarters smallestThis is the type of Station Sick Quarters accommodation, a Nissen hut, which would have been found on a wartime base such as Bourn or the fictional Ashby.

The extremely basic nature of the building can be seen despite the poor quality of the image. The Red Cross symbols on the building were placed there to deter enemy attack.

Photographs of SSQs on the wartime-built airfields are very hard to find, so I was very pleased to find this one.
