The 1950's
"Prior to the 1960's there were three squadrons: 3918th MV Squadron, 3918th Food Service Squadron, and 3918th Supply Squadron. Then they mergered into one squadron called: the 3918th Air Base Squadron. Around 1962, they split up again into about four squadrons. Transportation Squadron, Food Service Squadron, Supply Squadron, and Support Squadron". Jim Seymour, 3918th Air Base Squadron (SAC), 3918th Transportation Squadron (SAC), and The Heyford Minutemen Precision Drill Team Guide-On Bearer, 1959 - 1963.

The following photos provided courtesy of Neil Sargent, son of John Sargent of the 3918th Supply Squadron at RAF Station Upper Heyford, circa 1954.

"My name is Neil Sargent. My father John Sargent served in the US Air Force in the early 50's in the 3918th Supply Squadron. He is pictured in the 54 yearbook picture you have posted online. I have scanned and retouched a large number of slides and negatives that my father took while stationed there, both color and b/w - the negatives have never been developed until now!

I was thrilled to find your site and hope it will allow me to identify (and hopefully contact) some my fathers 'buddies' as he referred to them writing on the back of many of the slides.

Unfortunately my father died fairly young, at the age 58. He was always very proud of his service. In fact it was while on leave from the base when he met my mother in London.
