When war was declared on 3rd September 1939, it was apparent that Lowestoft, Britain's most easterly town would find itself on the front line of any enemy air campaign. To concentrate on air attacks would not tell the full story of the air war over Lowestoft. Recollections of tragic 'friendly fire' incidents, examples of selfless bravery and sacrifice and the still unsolved mystery of the 'unknown German' are all included.
Concludes with what is believed to be the first comprehensive list of civilian and service personnel killed in Lowestoft as a result of enemy action to have been published. This will appeal to anyone with an interest in aviation or local history.
