Response to WWII RAF Watch Office Blue Prints
12779/41 is the drawing number for "Watch Office, All Commands", which had two further revisions, 15371/41 (small front windows) and later 343/43 (medium size front windows).
Duxford has a "pure" 12779/41 tower.
Bury St. Edmunds tower is a 12779/41 modified to 15371/41 spec.
East Kirkby tower is a 12779/41 modified to 343/43 spec.
Martlesham Heath tower was built to 343/43 spec from new.
Let us know how you get on with the drawings from Hendon, I've had mixed results when I've had these sort of files from there.
All the best,
RAF Twinwood Farm
