R.A.F. Squadrons: A Comprehensive Record Of The Movement And Equipment Of All RAF Squadrons And Their Antecedents Since 1912 By Wing Commander C G Jefford

Minimum Donation €105.00

Since it first appeared in 1988, ‘RAF Squadrons’ has become the standard reference work for anyone seeking accurate basic historical data relating to the RAF’s key fighting formations – its squadrons. This new edition brings the work up to date by including additional material and amendments that has resulted from new research. The book provides similarly comprehensive information on: the squadrons of the RFC and RNAS, the predecessors of the RAF; those squadrons of Commonwealth and Allied air forces which were allocated designations drawn from the RAF’s sequence of number plates; the flying units of the Royal Auxiliary Air Force; and the jointly manned Army/RAF AOP squadrons prior to their transfer to War Office control in 1957. Twelve annexes complement the basic listing of each squadron’s movements and equipment; two of these, one keyed by aircraft type, the other by location, provide particularly useful cross-references

Pre-owned. Another innovative feature of ‘RAF Squadrons’ is the inclusion of fifty-three maps on which can be found the locations of the more than 2500 airfields and landing grounds mentioned in the titles. Apart from identifying most of the relatively familiar UK airfields, these permit the historian to find the location of virtually any aerodrome used by an RAF squadron in Europe, Africa, Asia and elsewhere, in both war and peace. The information contained in this meticulously researched book is supported by some three hundred black and white photographs, many of the previously unpublished, plus line diagrams. This completely revised and updated edition permits RAF Squadrons to maintain its undisputed status as the leading reference work on its subject. As such, it must find a place on the bookshelf of anyone with an interest in the Royal Air Force. A good clean copy in good condition. With dust jacket, which has two very small tears (No missing material) to the top and bottom right of the front, and a little discolouration and creasing along the top edge. Hardcover.
