Action Stations Revisited

Vol 3, SouthEast England
Vol 4, SouthWest England

CRECY CONTINUES TO reissue this important series, updated and with new illustrations in many cases, and these two volumes cover the whole of southern England.
Picking through these pages, it is interesting to note that in Vol 4 there are two airfields with very similar names Merrifield in Cornwall in 1918 and Merryfield in Somerset from 1942, the latter originally known as Isle Abbots.
Many of the airfields will be familiar names, but there are a number not so well known; Babdown Farm, Haldon, Laira and Lake Down in Vol 4, and Larks Barrow, Great Shefford, Hammerwood and Coldharbour in Vol 3, to name a few. The last named is better known as Headcorn, which can be confused with the nearby Lashenden. By the way, it is said that the locals know Headcorn as Egerton, a nearby village.
If you already have the previous volumes you may think these are an extra expense, but not so. Take the originals to an aero jumble and put the proceeds towards a new set!
