Fig.1. Hastings Library
With too much going on around the house I've decided to dodge all distractions and the sun and head for the library. I am spoilt for choice:
University of Sussex
Instead I'm heading off to Hastings as I've heard they have the only book that covers something on the Royal Flying Corps who were based along the south coast in various capacities during the First World War. The shocking read on Shoreham airfield is that by all account one in four of the pilots crashed in training with few of them surviving - just too windy for the flimsy craft.
