THE TANGMERE LOGBOOK
The magazine of the Tangmere Military Aviation Museum near Chichester in Sussex, is edited by Reginald Byron and recently included an article about the author H. E. Bates ( below), written by his granddaughter, Victoria Wicks. Bates’ stories, including The Darling Buds of May ( see Evergreen, Summer 2017), are wellknown but his wartime writing has, until now, been largely overlooked.
