The types of buildings used on the airfield.
Romney - looks like Nissen but larger.
Nissen - usually a 16ft wide hut or 24ft for larger version used as dinning rooms, kitchens, etc.
Asbestos - like Nissen but instead of tin, asbestos/cement sheets were used and they did not need supports, so were much easier to assemble.
M.O.W. - Ministry of Works type hutting. Often wooden framed and covered in asbestos flat sheets.
Seco - made by the UNI-SECO Ltd a prefabricated hut.
Shelters: -
Blast - a brick 32 man un roofed shelter.
Air Raid - usually a standard concrete prefabricated shelter made by the Stanton Iron Works Ilkeston.
Gun posts - could be 40mm Bofors to a small twin Lewis gun mounting.

Site No.2 Communal

Details

The Sites are split up and dispersed so that a bombing raid hopefully not kill or maim too many people. All the messing arrangements are in one area with Officers, Sergeants and Mens institute. Also a cinema, a gymnasium, squash court. Decontamination, started after WW1 when gas was used in vast amounts. The Government worried that a future war would mean the massive use of gas. So ALL airfields and camps had decontamination buildings. As the war went on and no gas was used, the decontamination huts were used as toilets, shower blocks and also storage.

No.2 Communal Fuel Compound

Details

166, Fuel Compound (108ft x 90ft), 9108/41.
Fuel compound held coke or coal as heating fuel for all the fires on the camp. Fuel was a prized item, it was in short supply and it was always cold. The store man had to issue and account for every piece of coal, so by not letting anybody have any, it meant he always had a full stock (job done). It was a constant battle between the store man and the Erk. Only the very cunning won. (That was usually the store man).

To enter the WAAF site you would have to book in and again when you left you would book out. Also the WAAF's here would be the fire picket and have a small amount of fire fighting equipment. A telephone line would connect it to the station HQ.
