Elsham aerodrome opened early 1917 and was the base for 33 (HD) Squadron ‘C’ Flight. 33 Squadron had its HQ at Gainsborough and dispersed its three flights to Brattleby (‘A’ Flight), Manton (‘B’ Flight) and Elsham (‘C’ Flight).
In 1918 all the flights were concentrated at Manton, and Elsham was closed.
Today the site is farmland.
