Maps and Aerial Views of Molesworth

The group of buildings immediately on the left of the photo is Group Headquarters. As you go to the top of the photo, it appears beyond the crossroad, is the 359th hardstand area(s) and to the left of that, not in view, would be the 359th Operations Buildings and crew huts. The runup area for the East to West runway would be that area shown just beyond one parked Fortress to be seen near the top of the photo.

You will note, leaving out the rear (left on photo), the narrow building (hallway) which enlarges as you go left, and in that enlarged area was the Intelligence Office. Further along you enter the larger area which housed Group Operations and where Mel Schulstad sat. To the left of this area, Lew Lyle had a tiny office when he was Deputy Group Commander.

Noting the Ambulance parked opposite of the Group Headquarters Building, that is where I parked my 360th Command Car. There was a small building directly opposite the main Group Headquarter building, in which there was a little Tea Shoppe operated by some local British women. In mid mornings a lot of us used to congregate there for a cuppa and some cookies.
