Your history page on Hawkinge is amazing. My father, Michael, served as a pilot there from May 22 -May 26 with RAF 605 flying Hurricanes during the evacuation of the BEF from Dunkirk.

Well worth Googling this brave gentleman. You barely scratched at the surface of his fascinating history, Chris. Guess the modesty is hereditary!

My word, he certainly is worth Googling! I just read the obituary of Michael Cooper-Slipper, and he was quite a hero during the second world war, and then became involved with the doomed Avro Arrow in Canada, my husband, who was in the RCAF, was still angry with the government about the cancellation of that aircraft to the day he died.
