Wings Over Wick
Alick George, Cross Heath, Newcastle, Staffs
If I remember correctly, I saw some Catalina Flying Boats at Wick, but being in the RAF Regiment we were mainly occupied in the defence of Wick airport and our people were generally on the perimeter. We were able to use our spare time by forming a quite good soccer team and also had a hockey team which had interesting games against the Wick WAAF team!! We also played a lot of the card game "Whist" and the "Drives" were held in private houses some miles from the airport. Most unusual to have a hand of cards in our hand and to move next door for the next!
