H.M.S. Gosling was a Fleet Air Arm Training Establishment during WWII. Seems this base was initially a ‘stone frigate’ but was later taken on by the RAF and used by USAF airmen at Burtonwood. This base was demolished in 2013. Entrance was on Lady Lane, Croft Near Warrington, Cheshire. Photos taken during a visit in 2011. Not to be confused with RAF Croft in North Yorkshire.
