The RAF Dispersal Caravan 1940 RAF083

One enterprising Squadron Leader used his own pre war Holiday Caravan as his mobile temporary ‘Dispersal Hut’ for his pilots. After having the civilian caravan ‘camouflaged’ in standard RAF ‘camo’ of that period the moveable ‘dispersal hut’ began to be copied by other squadrons. Soon the Air Ministry itself heard about this simple and practical solution and ordered several hundred from a manufacturer and soon they appeared on virtually every temporary as well as regular RAF airfield all over Britain. Some were even sent overseas to North Africa and into Sicily, Italy and France (after D.Day). Our model is typical of the original ‘1940 Battle of Britain’ design and is the perfect accessory for our pilots, groundcrew and aircraft.
