Action Stations Revisited - Volume 4
South West England
Military airfields of the south-west are the subject of the latest volume of the new Action
Stations Revisited series. Volume 4 deals with all of those airfields that are, or have
been, military at some stage in their time. The area covered includes most of the counties
of Gloucestershire, Hampshire and Wiltshire, along with those of Dorset, Somerset,
Devon, Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly and the Channel Islands.
The whole of British aviation history is reflected here from the birth of military aviation
at Larkhill, flying training at Old Sarum during the First World War and at
Upavon during the 1930s, to fighter operations from Charmy Down during
the Second World War. Post-war developments at Filton and Boscombe
Down are supplemented by recent activities at Culdrose, St.Mawgan,
Yeovilton and Lyneham. Accounts of the construction and operational use of
the stations, with the aircraft types flown and units involved are illustrated by
a wealth of photographs, many of them previously unpublished.
Arranged in alphabetical order with maps and map references, directions, plus an index,
Action Stations Revisited No 4. South West England provides a fascinating wealth of
information for the historian and enthusiast alike.
