Action Stations Revisited - Volume 3
South East England
Military airfields in Kent, through Sussex, Hampshire up to Swindon in
Wiltshire are all in the third volume of the new Action Stations Revisited
Airfields from which flimsy biplanes and blimps of World War I rose
to defend Britain and from which Hurricanes and Spitfires took on the
Luftwaffe in the Battle of Britain. Airfields from which the RAF fought the
long Cold War and more recent conflicts.
Instantly recognised names like Manston, Hawkinge, Odiham,
Tangmere, Lee-on-Solent, Greenham Common, Thorney Island,
Farnborough and Wroughton mingle with less well known places
such as Bekesbourne, Welford, Grain, Hartford Bridge, Throwley,
Ramsbury and Woodchurch. The relics of the little known story of
the Sound Mirrors, Britain’s early warning system before radar, are
amongst the many previously unpublished accounts and photographs
which illustrate this comprehensive coverage of Britain’s front line airfields.
Arranged in alphabetical order with maps and map references, directions,
plus an index, Action Stations Revisited No 3. South East England provides a
fascinating wealth of information for any aviation historian or enthusiast.
