Many of the books, etc. listed are out-of-print but copies should be available through the library or for reference in the Suffolk Record Office, Bury St.Edmunds. Other books, particularly 'guide books, on East Anglia or Suffolk may mention Lakenheath briefly - usually in a couple of lines on the church, Kitchener or the air base. They all say virtually the same and so have not been listed.
