I am researching the history of RAF Lindley / Nuneaton, now the site of the MIRA proving ground. Does anyone have any recollections or even any photos of the airfield?

Yes, there's some good aerial photo's (Second World War and later) that can be purchased from English Heritage (Swindon).

Check out the EH website and they proved a search at little cost.
