Region history

I’m looking at doing an in depth history thing (potentially a lesson) for my squadron. Currently one of our staff is doing history of the sqn itself but I am looking at doing the region.
If anyone has any information regarding the formation of regions or anything about the history of Central and East Region that would be greatly appreciated!

You’ve picked yourself a tricky subject, I suspect there is very little documented online or in “official” records about the formation of the regions.

I’ve had reasonable luck in the past by searching the British Newspaper Archive so that might be a place to try.

Edit to add, the earliest mention of “Central and East Region” that I’ve fround is from the Leicester Daily Mercury - Friday 12 February 1971
