New Book Published By The Museum

A new book entitled ‘Tangmere’s Own: Pilots who served King and Country from a Sussex airfield, 1918-1958’ has recently been published by the Museum. This book brings together fifty-eight portraits-in-words of some of those who served at 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 Fighter Command squadron in 1958.
