RAF Scampton is renowned as the former home of the famous World War II Dambusters 617 squadron before they moved to Woodhall Spa. However, Scampton was established in 1916 during World War One.
Originally known as Brattleby, the station was created as part of the nascent air defence of the country against the Zeppelin threat and simultaneously played host to an air training element.
