A report in The Times of 1 May 1919 refers to a trainee pilot stationed at
RAF Shotwick being court-martialled at 'Royal Air Force Headquarters, Upton,
Chester' for low flying. I would guess that this refers to Upton by Chester
in Cheshire rather than Upton, Wirral, Cheshire.

RAF locations in that part of Cheshire at that time included Hooton and
Shotwick which was later combined with RAF Sealand. There was also an HQ at
The Oaks, Ledsham, Wirral, Cheshire. The HQ at Upton appears to be a
separate location.



Has anyone any ideas exactly where RAF HQ Upton Chester was?
