{detailed description}Histories of all Royal Flying Corps, Royal Naval Air Service and Royal Air Force squadrons formed over a period of forty-seven years are in this volume. Anyone who has served with an operational squadron will find his unit mentioned, with details of its movements, aircraft types and strengths, its most memorable achievements and outstanding pilots. The Air Forces' changes of equipment and growth of power and importance are mirrored in these squadron records; from the Bleriots, B.E.s and Farmans above Salisbury Plain to the jet-age Vulcans and Hunters roaring worldwide.
As a valuable adjunct to the main section of squadron histories (including those formed during the last war from Commonwealth and Allied personnel), there are appendices giving details of squadron numbers; squadron titles; aircraft types supplied to squadrons or used for service trials and, where known, the first squadron to operate a particular type; personnel, squadron and aircraft strengths; Air Ministry specifications and airmen awarded the Victoria Cross.
The value of the book is additionally enhanced by the inclusion of the most complete and accurate charts of R.A.F. Fighter Squadron markings yet prepared, printed in ten colours.
