    Good Evening All,

    Im just curious to know if anyone has access to some photos of ROF Featherstone when it was open and running?

    I cant seem to find any online but any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,

    Ben

    Hi Ben. Photo's from Featherstone MOD site? Don't hold your breath. I worked there for over 20 years from 1968 onwards. Anyone caught with a camera woulda been taken out back and shot lol. No but seriously, due to the security there it would have been inadvisable to take a camera in. I have seen a couple of good videos on Youtube but they are from after it was decommissioned. As you'll be aware there are some excellent reports here at 28DL too. I wish you luck in your search and if you have any questions, feel free to ask me but I wont get involved too deeply...I'm still covered by the official secrets act...and I doubt I'd like prison food :-) Best regards.

    Ben, You will struggle to find any images of the site published, security was tight, and I had to sign the official secrets act before even being allowed near some of the buildings. Today, having now worked at other RoF sites, I wonder what all the fuss was about, but of all, I have some great lasting memories of nights in A25.. If you can find some old Royal Ordnance/British Aerospace internal company publications, you may turn up the odd picture or too. Happy hunting.. Martin

    Hi Martin, If you worked nights in A25 what year/period was this..we may know each other. I was there from '68 until '91, A23, A26, B15 Ap2 etc. Is there a way we can make contact in private, don't wanna tick off the guys in charge of official secrets lol :)

    Hi Martin. OK, look forward to a chat. I'm afraid I don't know how to PM in here, maybe someone smarter than me would care to explain? :-)
