    This gentleman was, I believe, a tall Texan boyfriend (from Grafton Underwood), of my mother's (Jeanne Thurgar), who was still at school at the time, and whose family lived at 'Ketnor House', Hannington Crossroads, on the main road between Kettering and Northampton. Photo taken in either 1944 or '45. There is a story about their friendship, during a visit to Kettering High Street, one day.

    The Maps I redid are based on the booklet 384th Bombardment Group Station 106 Grafton Underwood, England Maps and Site Plans (2019). The map page numbers are labeled the same except for page 44, that is one I made up to show the building outside of the map range. Hopefully they will come in handy for anyone exploring the base.

    I hope that those pictures might complete the Dark Angel photo collection. The picture of the crash site was taken by my father, Ernst Garbe.
