Essex Aviation Group News - 1992(2), edited by K.B. Hiscock
Published by the Essex Aviation Group in 1992, 32 pages. A5 size booklet (S6159WSO)
This booklet contains several fascinating articles and essays on aviation in Essex, especially during the Second World War, and includes several black and white photographs. The articles include:
- The return to Germany of a WW2 German Bomber Engine that was shot down over Billericay (and dug up at Noak Hill in 1971)
- The proposed 50th anniversary celebrations of Bradwell Airfield, and the role it played in the Second World War
- The USAF in East Anglia, and places to visit
- The story of a US Airforce pilot in the Second World War, and how his life was saved by three local girls
- Why we should honour the men of Bomber Command, by Lord Cheshire
- A list of Aviation memorials in Essex, and details of when they were built and who they remember.
Please note that this is an amateur publicaiton, and so although the articles and information it contains is highly detailed and informative, the actual presentation lacks a 'proffessional' level of finish.
Condition of the booklet is generally ok. The cover has some minor scuffs and creases, and some light nibbling along the edges, but the staple spine is intact and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
