Unit History: RAF Poling
RAF Poling was one of the premier radar stations on the south coast plotting high flying enemy aircraft. The Pylons of the Royal Air Force Station (three x 360 ft. and four x 240 ft.) literally dominated the lie of the Sussex downland immediately to the rear of the Technical Site. After hostilities had ceased, Poling was one of only a few of the stations kept operational and was not shut down until long after the war. The station provided low level raid cover for the south coast between Portsmouth and Brighton.
