I have a new copy of Early Birds A Short History of how flight came to Sheppey. Air Com Bill Croydon.

Thers's no publishing history, but it looks like a recent reprint of an older publication.

There is a booklet which has been republished in C&CI as an article, and a small booklet produced by the museum.

'Mr Fraser' turns out to be Hugh Henry McLeod Fraser who gain his ticket number 2039 on 15 November 1915, at the Grahame-White School, Hendon.
Interestingly, he is instructing at Eastchurch in October 1915!

Not to the best of my knowledge ... there has been a photographic history which is mainly aircraft that flew from Eastchurch ... however there is a small museum located at Eastchurch - they dont have a website that i could find, but they do have a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Aviation-History-at-Eastchurch-658251134281513/

The guy that runs the museum has been very helpful and knows his local aviation history (and will be in touch with other local/Eastchurch aviation historians) ... it may be worth posting a question on the FB page.

Good luck!

Several questions:

Has there been a decent history published of flying at Eastchurch?

Looking for details of a 'Mr. Fraser' who was an instructor at Eastchurch during October/November 1915, and probably beyond.
