  • This history is chronological so “Flying Log Books” may not be in sequence.

    Massingham that is mentioned is actually Great Massingham airfield the No. 342 “Groupe Lorraine” (Free French) Squadron was based at Great Massingham from July 1943 – September 1943 hence the transfer below to Hartford Bridge renamed Blackbushe, which is what Dad always spoke about and visited when he returned in the 80s.
