85 Squadron Engineering Conference
1984 or 85 at RAF Bawdsey. Courtesy of Terry Bright (OC MSF, RAF West Raynham).

Photo taken in the gardens of Bawdsey Manor. Terry believes it was a dinning in night after an 85 Sqn Engineering Conference. A few stalwarts of the Bloodhound system in this photo! Terry's comment: Some young engagement controllers present so it was a good job the photo was taken before the meal. I know we all stayed the night in the manor so it wasn't far to stagger to breakfast!
Can anyone add names?
