Scores of former members including pilots, ground-crew and administrative personnel were interviewed for this book which records the history of 112 from the First World War until the 1970's when it was disbanded. Appendices list the squadron's 'victory' claims, its aircrew losses in the air, known serial numbers and aircraft destroyed or damaged as a result of enemy action. The book is complemented by over 150 photographs, mostly taken from private albums. The Foreword is written by a former 'Shark' pilot, Neville Duke, the top-scoring RAF pilot in the Middle East Theatre during the Second World War and a leading test pilot.
