RAF Chicksands is on the grounds of a Monastery, a peaceful and idealic 
place of great natural beauty. It was (is?) being used by the US Air 
Force back in the 1980's and it's population included great numbers of 
ducks, attracted I suppose by the large lake. Just as there are signs 
for deer crossings and cattle crossings and pedestrian crossings, RAF 
Chicksands had "duck crossing" signs. There was even an officer assigned 
duty as a "Duck Warden" to watch out for their welfare. They had 
possibly the best American Youth Association (AYA) American football 
teams in England and on every occassion I visited to watch them play, 
they made it look easy. As the visiting team, it wasn't much fun going 
there but the beauty of the countyside made it worthwhile.
