Palmer, Derek.


Upton-upon-Severn, 1st ed., 1990. 384 pp., frontis., + over 100 photo-ills., ills., + plans. D.j., 25 x 19cm. Nr.FINE. Fighter Squadron is the definitive story of No. 19 Fighter Squadron. The author’s painstaking research brings to life the spirit of the Squadron from its birth in 1915, through its service in both World Wars and beyond. The diary of events, combat reports from both world wars, and the anecdotes and reminiscences of squadron personnel make for most interesting reading. The machines may have changed during the lifetime of No. 19, and these aircraft are examined here, but the sacrifice of its members remains unchanged. Illustrated with over 100 photographs and illustrations, this is one of the most comprehensive squadron histories ever to be published.
