Have been talking to a friend who worked down here many years ago. He did bomb disposal in many countries France also some where you cannot step of highways due to the land being full of them also worked in the raf fauld doing the clearance. He says it’s a maze and the numbers represent Bays for people to check so for example he could of been sent to bay 13 for checking stock or anything. The telecoms room looks awesome I suspect it was chaos back in the day.
