Colin recently described the book as follows:

“This is the story of RAF Winthorpe from its beginnings to its demise as an RAF Station.

Whereas there are numerous books on (and by) individual personnel, of unit histories and stations, there does not appear to be a definitive account of a wartime expansion airfield.

I have attempted to tell of what went before, what happened during and what became of the airfield. In so doing the stories of people involved with and peripheral to the stations story have been included as well as the aircraft stationed there, what buildings existed and how and when the runways were constructed; all in a historical context.”
