Hornchurch Scramble Summary

Hornchurch Scramble: The Definitive Account of the RAF Fighter Airfield, Its Pilots, Groundcrew and Staff: v. 1: 1915 to the End of the Battle of Britain by Richard Smith

Taking the reader through World War I (as Sutton's Farm), when early RFC pilots were hailed as the knights of the air, through the 1930s to the outbreak of war, household names abound - Leefe Robinson, "Sailor" Malan, Bob Stanford Tuck, Brian Kingcome, Al Deere, Paddy Finucane, Eric Lock, and many more. But it was as a main Sector Station in both the Dunkirk evacuation and the Battle of Britain, that Hornchurch achieved lasting fame. After seven years of research interviewing commanders, pilots, groundcrews and WAAFs, Richard Smith has uncovered the history of Hornchurch's distinguished record. The text also includes previously unseen photographs from private collections.
