By William C.Grayson, with original illustrations by John Thomas and Eric Watt, published by the Shefford Press 1992.
The history of Chicksands Priory, an ancient estate in Bedfordshire, looking at its history until the second world war when it was taken over by the RAF. The book then covers the contributions of the RAF Y service to the allied victory, with a description of life at Chicksands and some discussion of secret missions. Glenn Miller's association with Chicksands and his disappearance is also examined. From 1950, the USAF Communications security units were based at Chicksands, and the book includes the impressisons of a USAF tour at Chicksands.
There is a handwritten dedication on the title page, to the wife of Eric Watt ( both he and his wife are mentioned in the text), a Dedication inside to Eric Watt from the author, a typed addendum sheet, some sheets with additional memories, and on the front paste down and free end paper some comments presumed to be by Eric Watts. There is also a hand written obituary to Margaret Watts on the Notes page at the back of the book. Note some of the type ink has attached to the end papers.
The book was originally issued as a paperback, but this copy has been rebound as a hardback by R.G. Scales (stamp inside back cover) retaining the card covers internally.
