Booklet published by the author in 2013, 55 pages. A5 size booklet (N6672X1)

From the introduction: This booklet was originally written by Len Bartram as one of a series, sharing the history of Norfolk airfields which came under RAF 100 (Bomber Support) Group during WWII. They are made up from personal memories and information given by ex 100 Group personnel. Given I knew Len, and his widow Evelyn remains a valued friend, I am honoured to be revising, updating and re-producing these booklets in memory of a lovely man whose life was dedicated to keeping alive the history of these airfields and the people who served in them. I share that same passion, wanting to retain the voices of the people and their stories, remembering them as the heroes they were, willing to give their lives for their country. Sections include:
