This tells the fascinating history of RAF Defford from when part of the Croome Estate was first requisitioned in 1941 through the early days of Bomber Command training and on to when the airfield became the secret home of the Telecommunications Flying Unit.

Highlighting the lives of those who made such an important contribution to the development of airborne radar up until the airfield’s closure in the 1950s, the publication is packed with photographs and illustrations and is priced at £5.00.
