British Aviation The Great War and Armistice - 1915-1919
« on: January 31, 2019, 06:29:18 AM »
By Harald Penrose, published by Putnam & Co. 1969

I bought a copy of this book in a charity shop, a few weeks ago for just 2. It's a very interesting read and gives an insight into the design and supply side of WW1 British aircraft. There are lots of types that I had never heard of before (probably because they never saw combat, or went into production) and that I have certainly never seen modelled. It has 620 pages and lots of small photos.

I looked online and there are quite a few copies for sale but none under 40, so I definitely got a bargain!

Squiffy, congratulations to your bargain! Say, is there any information on the use of airplanes during the occupation of the Rhineland, post-armistice?
