The Birth of the Royal Air Force by Wing Commander (Retired) Ian Philpott.

Ian Philpott presents us here with a compendium of facts, operational histories and photo illustrations, combined to create a comprehensive account of the early years of the Royal Air Force. Illustrated throughout, it features details of all military operations from 1914 to 1918 which impacted upon the organisation. Also included are operational details of the Independent Bomber Force throughout 1918, a supplementary historical strand that is sure to appeal to Aviation enthusiasts with a taste for features of niche focus. Details of the airfields, landing grounds, seaplane bases and various other landmarks of this era are given.

Sure to make a welcome addition to any aviation enthusiast’s library, this well-researched piece of work has been a long time in the making. Philpott brings his typical flair to the project, leaving no stone unturned when it comes to this dynamic, defining period of Royal Air Force history.

‘This is a very useful reference work, covering a wide range of topics, but also starts with a readable history of British air power to 1918.’ (History of War)

‘This excellent book and reference source is highly recommended.’ (Classic Arms and Militaria)

Tracing Your Air Force Ancestors by Phil Tomaselli.

In this fully revised second edition of his best-selling Tracing Your Air Force Ancestors, Phil Tomaselli explains which records survive, where they can be found and how they can help you in your research. Whether you are interested in the career of an individual air-man or woman, researching medals awarded to a pilot or crew member or just want to know more about a particular squadron or operation, this handbook will point you in the right direction.

Each era in air force history is described, from the pioneering days of early aviation and the formation of the Royal Flying Corps in the First World War to the creation of the Royal Air Force, its operations during the Second World War and its post-war development. Phil Tomaselli outlines the evolving organization of the air force in each period. He also provides pointers and examples which should help researchers find the records of units and bases that individuals served in, the kind of work they did, the aeroplanes they worked with and the men and women they worked alongside.
