Description

RAF Marham’s history reaches back into the First World War when its aircraft served a vital home defence role,intercepting raiding Zeppelins and Gothas. In the late 1930s the station was reopened as a bomber base and, post-war, operated bombers and reconnaissance aircraft. Its squadrons played a leading role in the Falklands and Gulf Wars, and over Bosnia and Iraq. In 2008 the Marham Wing was one of the largest and busiest in the RAF, operating four squadrons of Tornado GR4 aircraft in the attack and reconnaissance roles.

This book features a history of the base in East Anglia, the post war period including B-29 Washingtons, B-52 deployments, Canberras, Victors, Valiants, and Tornadoes, which operated from the station to the Gulf War and up to 2019.  The book is complemented by interviews with personnel and many photographs, old and modern.
