Hello Folks, I hope you are all keeping well and hoping some of you might be able to help me, I am on the look-out for a Nissen Hut, to house the collection that I have amassed over the last 15 years, the collection consisits of original photographs, uniforms, wartime aircraft parts, and parts recovered from Langford related crash sites, additionally, many years of research has been done on many of the men and women who where stationed at Langford Lodge during the war-years, of which this will make up a large part of the display. If I can acquire a Nissen Hut, the collection can go on display for all to see and enjoy, not to mention our friends across the water in the U.S. who had relatives stationed here. I would like to thank everyone who took the time to kindly make a donation over the years, of which, this has went in to the production of many exhibit boards for the museum, uniforms, and a WWII Signal Corps radio that I have managed to get working, this was in use on the American Heavy Bombers such as the B-17 Flying Fortress, and Consolidated B-24 Liberator. The photographs on the left show a wartime Nissen hut, and how one has been turned into such a museum in the U.K.

The main parts that are required, are Nissen Hut frames, as can be seen from the middle photograph, but if there is one in good enough condition with corrugated panels still in good shape, it would help a long way into the getting this project up and going.

Hope you can help
