FlyPast magazine January 2019 p41/42: article on the RAF Museum storage facility at Stafford
The January 2019 issue of FlyPast has an article by Ken Ellis on a visit to the RAF Museum's storage facility at Stafford in which the editor spotted "A small area is devoted to items that do not belong to the RAF Museum. Operational units and bases accumulate memorabilia that once adorned crew rooms and corridors. On permanent disbandment much of this material comes the way of the museum, but if the unit is 'resting' it remains the property of the Ministry of Defence via the Air Historical Branch. During my visit several large boxes were due to be delivered to Marham in Norfolk and Lossiemouth in Scotland. Travelling to East Anglia were items for 207 Squadron which is due to re-form on July 1, 2019, as the operational conversion unit for the Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning."
