Pocka Gen

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.

One feature of the newsheets was the cartoons by F Jess Lay

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