I was posting to the AAM again today, this time some information about Rattlesden. The Control Tower is now being used as a clubhouse for the Rattlesden Gliding Club. We visited in July of 2013, which was a flying day for them, and they very kindly took us to the clubhouse, which you can only approach via the runway, and let us look around. On the clubhouse is a brass memorial for Robert Edward Femoyer, a Medal of Honor recipient. You can read about him here--if you follow the links at the bottom of the entry, you'll get the full story.
