This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Ministry of Defence did not have the information requested.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

Dunino Airfield is sited about five miles north west of Crail, Fife. I understand that after 1944, the airfield was no longer used for active service and became a storage site, used to store naval aircraft until the end of the war when they were decommissioned and destroyed. This lasted until 1946, when the airfield was closed, although it was retained by the Royal Navy until 1957, when it was finally sold off.

Can you please provide me with the information you hold relating possible radium contamination in and around Dunino Airfield

Yours faithfully,

Fred WP Dawson
