RAF Manston At the outset of the First World Warthe Isle of Thanet was equipped with a small and precarious landing strip for aircraft at St Mildred's Bay, Westgate-on-Seaon top of the chalk cliffs, at the foot of which was a promenade which had been used for seaplane operations.

The Admiralty Aerodrome at 'Manston' was opened in response. A training school, originally set up to instruct pilots in the use of the new Handley Page Type O bombers, was soon established.
