RICHMOND AIRFIELD
IN NEW SOUTH WALES
DURING WWII

 

I have previously found information that there was an Operations Building and Remote Receiving Building somewhere at Richmond during WW2. Could the "bunker" at Kurrajong Ridge in the Blue Mountains be the site of the Remote Receiving Building perhaps?
