RAF Harrowbeer. The former RAF Harrowbeer Airfield is situated in the Parish of Buckland Monachorum, Devon, UK. It is approximately nine miles NNE of the city of Plymouth and approximately six miles South of Tavistock, and also sits within the boundary of Dartmoor National Park. Although sited near the Village of Yelverton, it was called 'Harrowbeer' in order to distinguish it from RNAS Yeovilton. The airfield was under the control of '10 Group'. By Chris Smith.

Squadrons based at Harrowbeer:
500 squadron, flying Bristol Blenheims.
130 Squadron flying Spitfire Mk II fighters.
276 Squadron flying Lysanders and Boulton Paul Defiants and Spitfires.
Polish Poznan Squadron flying Spitfire VBs.
193 Squadron flying Typhoon fighters.
On December 18th, 1942, Typhoon fighters arrived at Harrowbeer, flown by 193 Squadron with the code letters DP. The Typhoon initially suffered from unreliability problems and could be a difficult aircraft to start. The Typhoon was however to play an effective part in the battle for Normandy in 1944 and was used principally in the ground attack role against German armour. One is reminded of Paul Nash's famous painting of Typhoons over Falaise.
