RAF Coltishall DVD last orders.

It's now been two years since I brought out the first edition of my souvenir DVD "I Remember RAF Coltishall". That was followed by the Archive Edition after the closure in November 2006. Copies have gone round the world and it's still selling around Norfolk. Jarrolds and the Origins shop at the Forum in Norwich, Barnwells shop in the Market Place in Aylsham, Express Print in the Market Place at North Walsham. We're now coming to the end of the last run so I think we'll stop production at that point. It was a worthwhile excercise and my only regret has been that I didn't anticipate the call for such a product. When we did, after everyone kept asking me if there was such a thing, all we could get hold of was amateur home-cam material. Added to which the RAF kindly let me strap a camera to the car and drive round every part of the station so we have a running tour of just what the base was like as operations ended. We could have got more flying and aircraft shots too but the addition of the station's photo archive was a big plus. Mick Jennings was a massive help and his book 'RAF Coltishall - Fighter Station' boosted sales again this last Christmas. Mick is happily retired in Oz now (Have you bought that boat yet Mick?)
So - for anyone who might like to grab one of the last copies of the DVD - here's a sample of the contents. To make enquiries go to Blog History in the right hand column and click RAF Coltishall.
