Description

In this volume the emphasis shifts from Fighter command and USAAF to the RAF and the RCAF and the Bomber airfields of Lincolnshire and Yorkshire, together with a few examples from Northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Here we find Bomber command at its most active, and from where it suffered most of the losses, and indeed where some of the most haunted airfields in Britain are to be found. Here we find famous names like East Kirkby, Scampton, and Coningsby, where the Battle of Britain Flight is now based. The RAF Bomber Command Memorial lists 55,573 names, a Bomber Command crew member had a worse chance of survival than an infantry officer in World War I Old Bomber airfields are lonely atmospheric places, and anyone who has visited a Second World War control tower on a bomber airfield wil perhaps have experienced the sadness that seems permeates the place, or the sense of waiting or of loss, or the strange coupling of a coldness on a warm day with the feeling of not being alone there This volume details researched accounts, personal communications from witnesses and my own investigations on what are probably the most haunted of our airfields
