When the First World War raged, RAF Catfirth in Shetland was the most northerly air station in Britain, a flying boat station planned to house 450 men and 18 aircraft.
In RAF Catfirth 1918 Simon Gunn brings to life the remote base and the men who served there in the last months of the war, including its charismatic commanding officer, Lt Col Charles Finch Noyes, and Lt Arnold B Massey, the dashing Canadian pilot who in the summer of 1918 became the first man to fly to Shetland.
RAF Catfirth could easily be overlooked as no more than a historical footnote, but this book, illustrated with many period photographs, proves that even the most distant posting has a past to remember.
Seasons Change, a wee rhyming book about the changing year, is perfect for parents to read with their bairns and share its beautiful illustrations.
