  • Hawker Hurricane Survivors (bookplate signed by Gordon Riley and Wg Cdr Tim Elkington)

    Gordon Riley

    This is part of a collection of Hawker Hurricane Survivors that include a specially designed adhesive bookplate that have been signed by both the author, Gordon Riley and Wg Cdr Tim Elkington, who wrote the book’s foreword. 

    With 2015 being the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain – arguably the Hawker Hurricane’s ‘finest hour’ – it is appropriate to tell the story of the surviving Hurricanes from around the world. Building on research originally started thirty years ago, the author has delved into the archives to amass new information – and in the process managed to identify positively one particular Hurricane which had proved elusive for more than forty years.

  • Jaguar Boys (signed by Ian Hall & 2 Veterans)

    Ian Hall

    This book is signed by author Ian Hall and two veterans.

    Originally intended as a trainer, the Anglo-French Sepecat jet, equipped with the very latest in weapon-aiming and navigational equipment, eventually became the backbone of the RAF’s tactical strike-attack and recce forces for a decade from the mid-1970s. In these pages, the Jaguar Boys – pilots, engineer and ground crew – tell of the aircraft’s drawbacks and joys, their sadness at losses, and their pleasure at its development into a readily-deployable and outstandingly-capable fighter-bomber for the post-Cold War era. Then came the Gulf War which signalled the start of a hectic sequence of operational adventures and upgrades for the ‘Boys’ and seasoned veterans tell of action over Iraq and in the Balkans. One of the best-loved of RAF types, the Jaguar commanded a fierce loyalty and affection which shines through in these accounts of an aircraft that will live forever in the memory.

    Christopher Shores, Brian Cull and Nicola Malizia

    This book is signed by Christopher Shores. 

    At last, here is the second volume of the dramatic story of the air battle for Malta during World War II, written by the acknowledged experts in the field and long-awaited by enthusiasts and specialist historians alike. The long battle had begun in June 1940 with the Italian declaration of war on the Allies, and the consequent decision of the Axis powers to subdue the island in order to control the Mediterranean. The Spitfire Year now takes up where The Hurricane Years left off, and concludes in enormous detail day-by-day the history of the struggle for the island, and the final success of the Allies and islanders themselves in raising the siege.

    Tony Blackman

    This book is signed by the author, Tony Blackman 

    The full story of the Nimrod, and its significance, has now been told. Tony Blackman, who was there at the beginning, test-flew nearly every aircraft and was at Kinloss on the very day the project was cancelled, has written this timely book, covering every facet of its history, its weapons system developments and its tragic accidents. He writes in an approachable way, making technical subjects understandable but his conclusions will, inevitably, not be welcomed by everyone.

  • Oswald Boelcke (signed by RG Head)

    RG Head

    Oswald Boelcke was Germany’s first ace in World War One with a total of forty victories.

    In this definitive biography RG Head explores why Oswald Boelcke deserves consideration as the most important fighter pilot of the 20th century and beyond; but also for setting the standard in military aviation flying. This book will appeal to enthusiasts of the German air force, military aviation in general and World War One in particular.
