A Midhurst Flying Field
The Story of a Forgotten Naval Air Station at War 1941-1945
by Tania Pons
First published by Selham Airfield Project, November 2017 ~ Second Impression, March 2018
Softcover ~ 176 pages ~ Colour and monochrome illustrated ~ Price: £14.00
This superb new book details the recently discovered history of the small but
important wartime airfield at Selham and Ambersham, near Midhurst in West Sussex.
Meticulously researched over several years by the author, including interviews with
key figures and in-the-field detective work. With much detail on the aircraft
(which included the Fairey Swordfish and Supermarine Walrus), life at the station at the
time, and memories from many locals.
One of the best Sussex local history books of recent years.
The first printing quickly sold out. Now into its second impression.
