10.9.03 – Really like the idea of your web site. Although my own research is related to 626 Squadron which flew Lancasters from RAF Wickenby in Lincolnshire during WWII, you cannot research a WWII Bomber Squadron without coming across Nissen Huts, they appeared all over the airfields. Nissen Huts were put to all kinds of uses, from stores to accommodation and from offices to NAAFI establishments. I have always found information about Nissen Huts difficult to come by so thought I would add my own contribution to your site. Below is a picture of a classic WWII RAF accommodation Nissen Hut for your collection.

If anyone should come across detailed plans of WWII Nissen Huts I would certainly like to hear from them.
