My Link to RAF Upwood
Four generations of my
family have worked at RAF Upwood. The picture below shows my Great grandad George
William Edwards who spent 17 years working at the camp. Vern my grandad worked
at Upwood after the war building the new houses. My dad Clive worked up there
with him for over 2 years. I myself started working at RAF Upwood full time
in 2005 and I still work up there part time to this day.
With any luck my son's will work up there with me one day
This is a picture I found while looking through my late grandads photo albums. I found out that my great Grandad George William Edwards worked at RAF Upwood for 17 years. I have been researching Upwood for well over 15 years now, and have only just found this link.
A news paper cutting which was in one of the albums
Vernard George Edwards (Vern) my Grandad. Vern won the Military Medal (MM) but we are not sure why, so iam trying to find out how he won the medal.
Vern was a Churchill tank driver during World War Two.
