1950’s Portland Air Base?

I have no idea if you can help me but my Father was a flight engineer in the RAF and I recall although 2 at the time, that we were based in Portland Dorset as my brother was born there two years after me so 1953.

Was there any such base in Portland or why would we have been living there.

I cannot find out any information and would be pleased of any help…
