During it's brief history RAF Davidstow Moor in North Cornwall was home to Coastal Command squadrons involved in Air Sea Rescue [ASR], U-Boat hunting and anti shipping patrols. Personnel came from the UK, Canada, United States, Poland, Australia, New Zealand, Czechoslovakia and Holland.
My father Claude Knight was stationed there and the airfield was part of my Royal Mail post round. I have been lucky enough to talk to many people with first hand experience of what went on there in wartime. This has been an ongoing project over the last 40 years.
The site is intended to give the researcher access to my personal archive which includes squadron and airfield records, details and lists of personnel, both service and civilian, the memories of those I have talked to and corresponded with, my own photograph collection, a local crash log, background information about the area and it's people before and after the war and anything else that may be of interest.
It will be as full a record as I can make it but until it is complete please feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions or would like to add to the site or my archive.

RAFDAVIDSTOWMOOR.ORG is back after being offline for a while now. It is going to take a little time to re-create the site and to add all of the previous content but we will be doing so over the next few days and weeks. Sorry for the inconvenience.
