R.A.F. Leconfield was an integral part of the village and St. Catherine's church for nearly 40 years until it was handed over to the Army and became Normandy Barracks and the Joint Services Driving School in 1976.
E Flight 202 Squadron search and rescue helicopters continued to fly from Leconfield until it too was disbanded in 2015.
The book is a pictorial overview of all the Squadrons that served at R.A.F. Leconfield from peace time in 1937 to the Battle of Britain, Bomber Command to the cold war and beyond and the heroism of the men who served. It is comprised of photos from squadron websites and personal photos from those who served there.
It was compiled to celebrate the Station's long association with St.Catherine's church and the dedication of a new R.A.F. chapel and altar by the Right Reverend Richard Frith, Bishop of Hull, in 2012.
