Great photos and painting James. It really makes a difference seeing the base from so many different angles and being able to identify buildings etc... Thanks. I found this newspaper article written around early 1946 by John Hockin, Squadron Intelligence Officer in Northern Ireland at the height of The Battle Of The Atlantic. I also came upon this picture in the book "Coastal Command" Air Ministry Account 1939-1942. It is deicribed as a flying boat station in Northern Ireland. It is Castle Archdale. Although not great quality it looks to have been taken from Flight Control overlooking the lough. Note the aerial/mast structure to the right. Regards Skyhawk (Robert).
