This is the first full, authorized history of the RAF fighter station at Tangmere, West Sussex, from its origins in the First World War until its closure in 1970. Famous for air displays during the 1920s and 1930s, Tangmere sent the first fighter squadron to France in September 1939 and played a major role in the Battle of Britain in 1940. The book features extracts from memoirs by pilots and crew based there as well as the station's Operations Record Books.
