New Museum booklet

‘Tangmere’s SOE Pick-up Pilots’ is the title of the latest booklet from the Museum’s Education Department.

This book, the 11th in the series, tells the story of some of the extraordinary men who flew these operations. Priced at just £2 it is excellent value and makes a fascinating read. The other titles in the series are:

  • Americans at Tangmere
  • Tangmere Fights Back 1941-1943
  • D-Day at Tangmere and its Surrounding Airfields
  • Tangmere and the World Air Speed Record
