New aerial photo collection from 1943/44

Just out from Historic England:
"A collection of Second World War aerial photography has been made accessible to the public for the first time.

The photographs were taken by the United States Army Air Forces Photographic Reconnaissance units stationed around England in 1943 and 1944."

Worth a look to spot ye antiquities, A quick look at the South Wonston area near Winchester (including Worthy Down camp, at the time occupied by the Royal Navy Air Service with Laurence Olivier among the staff) shows some nice marks for two of the cluster of four long barrows in the area, one of which was subsequently much reduced by the plough.
