    The attached magazine article (under piece entitled "Rotor Parade Ground"), from Friday 10 December 195 details the opening of the heliport as having taken place "last Tuesday", making the opening date 7 December 1954.

    (I can also provide a book article quoting the opening date as 7 December).
