Lincolnshire's links with military and naval aviation go back to the early years of the last century. The county has played a key part in the UK's front line in two world wars, and in the cold war of the decades since.
Perhaps better known as Bomber County it is forever associated with the endeavours of 1 Group and 5 Group and the Avro Lancaster, but it has a tradition ranging from day and night fighters to the transport aircraft which flew Airborne Forces to the Battle of Arnhem.
The result of 10 years painstaking research this book provides a comprehensive survey of the many Memorials to the Commonwealth and Allied Air Forces that are to be found within the county.
Meticulous details (including map references) are given of 450 individual items at more than 100 sites, as well as sections describing other related items.
As a record of the commemoration in Lincolnshire to the men and women of the Air Forces it is a fitting tribute to endeavour and sacrifice.
It is also a very practical guide for the visitor, and as well as adding to the available material covering the county the book provides a source of reference to this often neglected aspect of aviation history.
This latest (4th) edition is published by Midland Counties Publications.
