Written on behalf of Lesley F Baker by Crawley Library.
During my service, I was stationed for a time at Tangmere aerodrome. After one returning from France, one Squadron returned with a goat that they had captured. The Goat had a swastika on it. They set about removing the swastika and replaced it with a ‘V’. The goat was allowed to roam the aerodrome but was completely uncontrollable. You would be walking around and suddenly someone would yell out “watch out — goat” and you would just have to get out of the way. The goat would go for anyone. One day it got into the cook house and caused complete chaos.
The goat was eventually put down as it was uncontrollable!
