Wings Over Sands

A history of the Cark Airfield site - from the proposed airship factory development in 1916-1917 to its wartime use as RAF Cark. Including No1 Staff Pilot Training Unit from 1942-1945, No.9 Light Artillery Unit, 650 Squadron Anti-Aircraft Cooperation Unit from 1942-1944. Also, RAF Grange-over-Sands Equipment Officer's Training School based at the Cumbria Grand Hotel from 1941-1944. A lavishly illustrated and at times humorous journey through the history of these establishments. This book will transport the reader far beyond Cumbria to such diverse locations as Iceland, South Africa, Canada, Australia, America and even Blackpool. In recognition of the avid interest which still exists concerning the war years, this book is the author's attempt to illustrate what the conflict meant to the South Furness peninsula and to engage the reader in his long-standing and undiminished fascination with our local wartime airfields.
