Description: The 55th Group mess hall during lunch at Wormingford, 7 May 1944. Upper non-coms were issued bikes but the lower-ranking enlisted men had to buy theirs. Great color shot of dozens of bikes parked outside the main mess hall at Wormingford! Apart from showing a lot of potentially hungry ground crew, it also shows the invaluable necessity of the bicycle on such large airfields. **
