Tony Harding was a friend and regular supporter of our RAFA Branch for many years. His research and writing about R.A.F. history is highly appreciated within RAFA and beyond. We will soon be publishing Tony’s illustrations and wonderful stories as a series to ensure its legacy and preserving Kenley’s stories for future generations. Watch this space.
