RAF Watchfield

Born, Lived and Died during the War years 1939 - 1946

This is the memories of Fred C. Guilmant of Southampton, who was a Flight Lieutenant stationed at the RAF base at Watchfield. It contains wonderful information and photographs from his time there and is not only an important piece of aviation history, but a fascinating piece of Watchfield's history as well. Many thanks must go to Fred Guilmant for putting this together and for his family who encouraged him to, 'get on with it.' To read a copy of the book please go HERE
