RAF Catfirth 1918

Regular price £8.50

The Story of a First World War air station and the first flight to Shetland.

When the First World War raged, RAF Catfirth in Shetland was the most northerly air station in Britain, a flying boat station planned to house 450 men and 18 aircraft.

Simon Gunn brings to life the remote base and the men who served there in the last months of the war, including its charismatic commanding officer, Lt Col Charles Finch Noyes, and Lt Arnold B Massey, the dashing Canadian pilot who in the summer of 1918 became the first man to fly to Shetland.

Illustrated with many period photographs.
