Found this on the bottem of a copy of The Sun :schocked: "The surviving Battle of Britain Veterans have produced a fantastic and moving book about their epic few months but cannot find many buyers because they can`t afford advertising. it`s a terrific bargain at only £7 including p&pand you can get yours from The Battle of Britain Historical Society, Gunthorpe NR24 2NS ".

  16. :? Please help A quick note - I have heard today that the former airfield at Tangmere is once again threatened by housing development. We have a special connection to this place - you may remember this was the venue for our 60th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain event in 2000. The site is up for sale and plans are in place to demolish all that remains of the iconic airfield site. This is such an atmospheric place and full of the spirit of 1940 still. PLEASE help save what we can - this airfield contributed significantly to the Battle of Britain. The main building threatened is the Sector Operations Room scheduled for demolition in 2007!! We need to act now. The Air Historical Branch states that this building (previously located at Northolt) is the best "preserved and sole surviving Sector Ops Block of the modified 1924 Watch Office design remaining in RAF hands". The building was occupied for most of the Battle of Britain and was visited by King George and Churchill. To help save the building please eMail dcplanning@chichester.gov.uk or write to MoDEL intergrated Project Team, C/O RAF Bortholt, Westend Road, Ruislip, Middlesex HA4 6NG and state your reasons why we need to save this building for future generations. PLEASE ACT NOW BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE. CAN YOU PASS THIS ON TO ANYONE IN YOUR NETWORK OR GROUP WHO MAY BE ABLE TO HELP. Thanks () Bryan & Louise
