011615 - THE SQUADRONS AND UNITS OF THE FLEET AIR ARM (Air Britain)
By Theo Ballance, Lee Howard and Ray Sturtivant
The result of unparallelled research using information gathered from a wide range of sources, including Museum and National Archive records, Squadron and Flight diaries, Navy Lists, individual Flying Log Books, aircraft records, reference works, photographic records, contemporary newspaper reports and the magazines, reports and websites of various naval and aviation historical societies and associations, THE SQUADRONS AND UNITS OF THE FLEET AIR ARM is the standard and most authoritative reference work on the subject.
Throughout 512 pages of information, much of it never before published, are contained brief histories of every Naval Air Squadron - including Australian, Canadian and Dutch squadrons where these have been numbered in the 700- and 800-series - aircraft- and helicopter-capable ships, bases, Battle Honours, Trophies and Awards, detailed sections on helicopter Flights and notes of many of the Schools, Sections and Units that have supported the Fleet Air Arm for more than eight decades, illustrated throughout by more than 800 photographs and, for the first time in one volume, over 180 squadron, ship and unit badges, mostly in colour.
