Ok, of course you knew I'd have related story, right?

laughing smiley I'll keep it short. There is an old air field used to train Pilots during WWII about 20 miles from me. Eagles Field... I've posted about it before.

Some years ago I was out rummaging thru the ruins and came across an old black and while photo of an airman and a young lady.. perhaps his wife, girlfriend? That photo fascinated me and I wondered if it would be possible to identify them... send them the photo if I did. I couldn't. Eventually I took the photo back to Eagles Field and buried it near where I found it in a waterproof container. Laid it to rest, so to speak.

Not long after a guy tried, and is still trying, to get a museum started there. I thought, "HEY, go get the buried photo and give it to the museum". Alas... when I returned I discovered that a lot of work had gone into the area... removing old trash, disking to clear weeds... and they had disked the location where I buried the photo... no chance of finding it other than by pure luck.

Eagles Field was also a German prisoner of war camp. I could be remembering this incorrectly but I think Waterfield has been there.... and also Crazylegs.. who I "THINK" attended a yearly function they have there where they dress in WWII uniforms/outfits and dance to big band music. - JamesJM
