For 15 years, the author has been studying R.A.F. airfields and the paranormal phenomena that have been reported from them, and to date has accounts from over 250 haunted RAF airfields in the UK. These begin with ghostly reports at Montrose and Scopwick during World War 1 and continue to be witnessed to the present day. Why are so many airfields haunted? A variety of reasons but one that seems to be a common thread is that the airmen felt that the airfield was home, where their friends were and that is where the dead want to be. Volume One in this three-book series of haunted World War 2 airfields of the UK covers Southern England: 79 airfields in the counties of Avon, Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Essex, Gloucestershire, Greater London, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Kent, Oxfordshire, Somerset, Surrey, Sussex and Wiltshire. Each airfield has a description of events, the squadrons which were based there and the ghostly accounts associated.
