Opened it 1927,the Former RAF flying corps club passed into the hands of the Americans who added the last modern bar called Jandys.The living areas were quite respectable and the ballroom held host to big name stars.Closing along with base in 1994,the building quickly suffered from the damp,so a decision was taken to remove all the timber floors to allow the air to keep things less moist.There is talk of still turning this building over to be used as a school,so we shall have to wait and see.I visited in October 2011.
