Raf Kirton In Lindsey

Royal Air Force
Kirton in Lindsey or more simply RAF Kirton in Lindsey was a Royal Air Force
Royal Air Force
installation located 15 miles (24 km) north of Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England. From the historical point of view, there is some uncertainty about the correct name of the location. Kirton Lindsey or Kirton-in-Lindsey? It appears to have been an RAF habit (inherited from the RFC) to name its bases after the nearest railway station, possibly to simplify the process of issuing Rail Warrants to personnel posted there. By that token, the site should be RAF Kirton Lindsey, Kirton Lindsey being the name of the nearby railway station constructed in 1849. No.255 Squadron's Operations Record Book (ORB)[1] consistently uses that version of the name
