WWI commemoration – East Boldre airfield

Carrying on from my first post about our WWI related adventures at East Boldre.

There was a thriving airfield at East Boldre 100 years ago and a surprising amount of it has left a presence.

Foundations for one of the hangars:

A mound used for small arms practice (I did rummage about for spent bullets but couldn’t find any):

Foundations for a fuel tank:

And all of it not visible unless you go and poke around the heather and gorse.

You can read more about the local war memorials via the excellent East Boldre website.
