The RAF requisitioned Danesfield House in April 1941 and it became the main interpretation centre for photographic reconnaissance operations in the European and Mediterranean theatres, serving as the headquarters for the Allied Central Interpretation Unit. By 1945 there were over 600 photographic interpreters stationed there, more than half of whom were women. By May 1945, the station held 5 million prints from which 40,000 reports had been produced. The property remained in the RAF until 1977.
