The  Bentwaters  Base  Newspaper . .   F O R U M

RAF Bentwaters & Woodbridge had a base newspaper called the FORUM.  At least it did during the late 70's & early 80's.  The newspaper may have been known by a different name during the 50's, 60's or the 90's - presuming there was a base periodical during those decades.  This webpage seeks to post as many existing twin base newspapers from all decades.

If you have any old copies of base newspapers, please contact the webmaster & arrange to have them scanned so they may be posted here for all to see & reminisce.

These scans are quite large in size.  Be prepared to wait a while for the download especially if you have a dial up connection.  Some copies are in good shape whereas others are of worse quality.
