Today we had BBC Radio Suffolk at MHAS Control Tower broadcasting a live show by James Hazell from 1000-1300hrs interviewing many veterans and local people associated with MHAS and I met three ex members [or their families] of RAF Martlesham Heath in initial contact their names are 

Derek Prentice

Clive Batten

Ted Warner

I will add more details when I receive some replies

Meanwhile Mr Peter Davies, Chair of MH100, was able to air the 1917-2017 event on BBC
