Sad to say, this book is now effectively 'out of print'. We started planning to replace the book with a DVD-ROM some 18 months ago, and now it is complete. We can now issue a digitised copy, complete with photos, on DVD at exactly the same price.
For anyone interested in local history, has an interest in the historic families of Sutton & Wawne, or who has recently moved into the area, we think the DVD will be just as popular as the book.

HULL'S OWN AIR FORCE STATIONby Leonard C Bacon
in softback, A4 size.
We must add our own thanks
that Len completed this history before his untimely death on 23 Aug 2007.
It is packed with information about all the units that served at RAF Sutton on Hull until its closure, along with b&photos and diagrams, and is a thoroughly comprehensive study of a time that is still fondly remembered by older Sutton residents.
Whether recounting the days of the RAF School of Fire-Fighting and Rescue, or of the wartime balloon barrage crews, it is a fascinating read and sales financed the placing of the Blue Plaque commemorating the RAF station in Bransholme Library.
