Hal Far - HMS Falcon331 viewsMy father Len Reed was in the Royal Navy when he became in charge of a small unit of the Fleet Air Arm at Hal Far in 1950-53. I think he went up in planes fixing electrical faults connected with the radios and communications. (He didn't care much for that part !)

At sunrise of the next day the airfield became Royal Naval Air Station Hal Far and was named HMS Falcon. It remained so until 1967.
