Life on the Base

Pocka Gen Association

During, and just after, WWII various entertainments took place at Pocklington.

These included visits by visiting entertainers through ENSA and  “Home grown “events put on by the Concert Party.

One member of the squadron did a lot of set design for these shows and went on the have a career as a nationally known actor on TV and radio.

Both aircraft crews and ground crews needed to relax and there was an active social life at RAFD Pocklington which included dabces, sports, and entertainments.

Much of this was documented in the base newssheet “Pocka Gen” which seems to have been published every couple of weeks.

We have a few copies and would love to get hold of more. Maybe there are some in your family papers?
