In September 1946 Stradishall reverted to 3 Group and five squadrons of Lancasters were based here until February 1949.In April 1946 Numbers 149 and 207 Squadrons had arrived at RAF Tuddenham, although only on half strength.Redgrave Hall had been requisitioned for troops during the war, and following this period, and the massive repairs needed, it was demolished in 1946, like many other large houses of the time.The airfields and military installations in our area naturally began to be wound down.The local air training squadron had its gliding school moved here from Westley, although it had been used for gliding purposes for several years as an adjunct to Westley.Tuddenham closed for flying in November 1946, but would return to duty in 1954.The large establishment for training the recruits needed by the Third Infantry Division at Gibralter Barracks and Blenheim Camp, (West Lines), was now scaled down.It was re-designated as Number 12 Primary Training Centre under Lt Colonel Milnes, late of 1 Suffolk.

Honington remained as HQ for the American VIII AF Fighter Command until 26th February 1946.Number 622 Squadron had disbanded at RAF Mildenhall in August 1945 and been replaced by 44 (Rhodesia) Squadron, who would remain here until August 1946.The base remained active, but on 26th May, 1946, the second open day since the end of the war was held.The people had changed and a way of life had disappeared. Rationing continued, families were still separated in many cases, and homes were destroyed.Long term issues replaced the day to day survival of the war, and the economy was totally geared to munitions production and had to be turned around.
