Disused RAF barracks, Lympne, Kent

RAF Lympne was opened in 1916 by the Royal Flying Corps.

In 1919, the airfield was turned over to civil use as Lympne Airport. In 1939, it was requisitioned by the Fleet Air Arm as HMS Buzzard, and was later renamed HMS Daedalus II.

In 1940, it was taken over by the Royal Air Force, and once more became RAF Lympne. Lympne was heavily bombed during the Battle of Britain, putting the base out of action for a number of weeks. Later in the war, Lympne was used as an Emergency Landing Ground for bombers returning from raids in Europe. In 1946, RAF Lympne closed, returning to use as a civil airport which continued until 1984.
