One of the earliest if not the earliest account of the work of the Royal Naval Air Service.
Published by authority of the Admiralty by the Illustrated London News, this large format 46 page ‘magazine’ details in text and images the workings of the Royal Fling Corps, from the various trades within the corps, to flight / combat air warfare, through to the care of injured / wounded airmen.
It’s a most informative period work with many very good close up uniform detail images.
Something of a must for all those interested in the Royal Flying Corps, and a collectable in its own right.
Slight spine wear and fragility with the usual corrosion to the staples binding the work.
Generally excellent overall damage and mark free condition.
(This publication is the rarer counter part to the previous listing detailing the work of the R.F.C.).
