Westcott airfield in Buckinghamshire was open as an airfield for less than four years during the Second World War. However, the site went on to have a long and interesting history, becoming a centre for rocket propulsion testing with work undertaken by various organisations. ABCT unveiled a marker at the airfield on 28 September 2012.
