DYSART AIRFIELD

February 1913

Upper Dysart Farm was the site for the first operational military airfield in Great Britain.

You may have noticed a little logo on our Upper Dysart Larder packaging, around our website and on our van.

It’s a biplane! This is because the biplane plays a fascinating part in Upper Dysart’s history.

In 1912, the British government planned 12 “Air Stations” operated by the Royal Flying Corps which had been established in April that year. Under the instruction of the First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill, the first of these Air Stations was to be at Montrose to protect the Royal Navy bases at Rosyth, Cromarty and Scapa Flow.

On 13th February 1913, five aircraft of No.2 Squadron, Royal Flying Corps, took off from Farnborough and flew north.

The aircraft landed at Upper Dysart Farm on 26th of February, three miles south of Montrose, marking it as the first operational military airfield to be established in Great Britain.

Upper Dysart Farm has a great history, and we would love to share it with you during your visit. To find out more about Upper Dysart Airfield and the ghost of Desmond Arthur, walk across to the airfield when you come to buy your mash.
