Kelly has, for the first time, put the spotlight on many of the US Military’s lesser-known command and support bases that were located in and around London, England.The 444-page book, Home Bases: American Military Bases In and Around London, published through Bayberry Books (www.bayberrybooks.com) sets out the history and fate of the various bases, installations and offices used by the US Military in and around the British capital primarily from WWI to the present day.Life and times on those bases (often known as ‘Little Americas’) is furthermore brought alive through a series of ‘snapshot’ memories by around 40 people whom either served, worked or were involved with everything from owning them, establishing them and occupying them to demolishing them.Among those who have contributed their memories was actor Larry “JR Ewing” Hagman who spent four years stationed at the former USAF Third Air Force South Ruislip headquarters base in Middlesex.

As Hagman, who passed away in late 2012, recollected: “I had my own little kingdom and nobody knew what I did or what was going on. I really liked that.”
