Rostrop Road is one of the street names from the original RAF(H) Nocton Hall officers' married quarters, or patch. It still exists today in its original form as one of the streets in Nocton Park after the disposal of the surplus quarters by the MOD in the early 1990s.

ROSTROP ( ROSTRUP )


Rostrup is a small village in north-western Germany near to Bad Zwischenahn, north-west of Bremen, in Ammerland, Weser-Ems, Niedersachsen. Its original name, Rostrup, was anglicised to Rostrop . There were three RAF stations in the area – Jever, Ahlhorn and Nordhorn – and Oldenburg is also not far away.

RAF Hospital Rostrop opened in 1953 and closed in 1958. It was created when No 1 Mobile Field Hospital, then based at RAF Rinteln, deployed to Rostrop airfield in 1953 following closure of British Military Hospital (BMH) Oldenburg. It provided specialist and general medical facilities for RAF personnel and their dependents in Lower Saxony but also deployed a mobile field hospital from Rostrop on woods near Bruggen during major exercises. Ultimately it became the medical focus for all British personnel in the area following the closure of BMH Hostert. In turn it closed when the RAF assets and facilities moved south to the new airfields in the Rheindahlen area.
