William Perry Watts as a schoolboy remembered seeing the planes of the 96th Combat Wing (including the 467th Bombardment Group) flying to formation points off the Norfolk Coast. This lifelong memory drove him, after training as an RAF cadet pilot, military policeman, and senior executive to return to exploring the history of the local USAAF airbase in 1944-45. Retired, he painted a range of pictures related to its aircraft, before moving on to capturing the organisational history of the base in his 2006 book "The 467th Bombardment Group (H)". This book is a continuation inasmuch as it focuses on the exemplary story of one - albeit the most famous - of the Liberators that regularly flew from Rackheath at that challenging time.
