SSQ – The View from Outside

The photograph shows a characteristic Station Sick Quarters in a Nissen hut, such as were found on wartime bases like RAF Stations Bourn and Gransden Lodge.

The extremely basic nature of the building can be seen despite the poor quality of the image. The Red Cross symbols on the building were placed to deter enemy attack.

Photographs of RAF SSQs in wartime are very rare.
