Privately Printed, Walsall, 1st ed., 1992. 67 pp., photo-ills. Laminated boards ; 30 x 21cm. FINE. RAF Calshot was initially a seaplane and flying boat station, and latterly a Royal Air Force marine craft maintenance and training unit. It was located at the end of Calshot Spit in Southampton Water, Hampshire. From March 1913 to August 1961, Calshot was principally concerned with the training of flying boat pilots and crews including those for the ancillary marine craft, thus it became the "mother" station for marine craft activities in the RAF. This book reports mainly on the training of flying boat crews in the inter-war period and is illustrated with photographs.
