Pilots Who Served King And Country

From A Sussex Airfield, 1918-1958

David Coxon and Reginald Byron

This book brings together fifty-seven portraits-in-words of those who flew from the Royal Air Force fighter station at Tangmere, near Chichester, West Sussex, between its opening as a U. S. Army Air Service training depot in 1918 and the withdrawal of its last RAF air-defence fighter squadron in 1958. Many thousands of men and women, officers and other ranks, passed through its gates in those years. Each, in his or her own way, made a contribution to the work of the station. In this book we particularly remember those who met the enemy in aerial combat in time of war. Portrait number fifty-eight, Dr Courtney Willey, was not a pilot but nonetheless deserves to be included here as one of Tangmere’s Own.
