hello again

well it's September and summers sliding slowly away (was it even here??) (hey that was a good alliteration!!)
anyway heres "news of the month" from aircraft recognition from 60 years ago this month - as the "aircraft in the news" section is only one page this month i have included a scan from the first page of the journal too.

<img src=http://mysite.freeserve.com/Angel_one_five/ArSep1.jpg>

as usual i would point out as it is a wartime publication it may be subject to innaccuracies and propaganda (particulary the first page!!) so it is not suggested to take anything as solid "fact".

i hope it is of interest to you - i will bump from time to time for others to see - please feel free to bump yourself if you enjoyed it ! cheers /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

not meaning to give my life story /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif but.......

I was given them when I was about 10 or something by my aunt. She used to run an antiques shop somewhere in Lancashire, unfortunately she died of cancer around 10 years ago. Her then husband (my uncle) used to fly Vulcans as the Commanding Officer of 617 squadron (famous for the dam-busters raid). I think she gave them me as a present as she knew I was into ww2 airplanes (and also perhaps as it is the kind of thing you may come across whilst in the antiques business - but maybe not ideal goods for an antiques shop) - although at the time I looked at the pictures and not much else - to a child they appear "boring" - hence they were stowed away in my loft for a while. I got them down from time to time but only in the last few years have I come to appreciate their historic value. Unfortunately by not always appreciating their value they have probably been exposed to more wear and tear than they should have been (although they are still in reasonable condition) also although I was told it was not a complete collection when given them - I fear one or two may have been lost somehow - what in particular irks me is the absence of volume1 issue 1 (September 1942).

As for where they came from before my aunt got hold of them I don't know- what I do know is that they definitely belonged to someone during wartime (as opposed to being surplus issues or something) as a lot of the quizzes/silhouettes have been written in in pencil. Also it is highly likely it was a civilian who owned them as the final issue in the collection states how it is to be moved up one security class to allow for more sensitive material to be put in in order to be up to date for troops in the pacific - therefore any subsequent issues would not be available to civilians - as that is where my collection ends - it is a safe assumption.
