The RAF in Cumbria 1939-1946

North Lancashire – Dumfries and Galloway

For his fourteenth book Ian Tyler has detracted from mining history to provide a body of work on the vital importance of the RAF in Cumbria, Dumfries and Galloway and North Lancashire 1939-1946, revealing the staggering sacrifices made.  This is the untold story of what happened to our Trainee Aircrews, the story of the Airfields, the fearless RNLI and Air Sea Rescue Units who did their best to pluck the ditched airmen from the Solway, Clyde and Irish Sea.

The book, while providing a comprehensive history of all our airfields and most importantly, Ian has also listed and recorded most of the aircraft incidents and where possible the aircrew details, contains many unique drawings and photographs.
