‎FRANKS, NORMAN, ED. (NEVILLE DUKE.)‎

‎The War Diaries of Neville Duke: The Journals of Squadron Leader N F Duke, Dso, Obe, Dfc & 2 Bars, Afc, Mc (Cz), 1941-44.‎

‎London, Grub Street. 1995. (ISBN: 1898697167) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 218 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2"H). B&w maps, photos. "Joining the RAF at the beginning of the war, (Neville Duke) found himself, aged 19, as a young fighter pilot with the crack 92 Squadron at RAF Biggin Hill, in 1941. That spring and summer he survived the air battles over Northern France with the Biggin Hill Wing, often flying as wingman to the legendary 'Sailor' Malan - Fighter Command's top-scoring pilot at that time. In those months he learnt the fighter pilot's trade, lessons that were to prove invaluable when, in November, he was posted to a very different war in the Western Desert. Flying the famous 'Shark-Mouthed' P40B Tomahawk fighters with 112 Sqn, he quickly established himself as one of the most successful pilots in North Africa, winning the DFC and bar. By 1943 he was flight commander with his old 92 Squadron which had also become part of the Desert Air Force. Again flying Spitfires, he had scored twenty-one by the end of the Tunisian Campaign, was a warded the DSO, then given command of 145 Spitfire Squadron in Italy. Leading this unit in the summer of 1944 he brought his score to twenty-eight, returning home in late 1944 as the highest scoring pilot in the Mediterranean Theatre.." One illustration page with small corner crease. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top of spine and rear flap-fold and tiny tear at top of rear flap-fold. Very Good+/Very Good+.‎

‎FRANKS, NORMAN.‎

‎Buck Mcnair: Canadian Spitfire Ace. The Story of Group Captain R W Mcnair Dso, Dfc & 2 Bars, Ld'h, Cdg, Rcaf.‎

‎Grub Street, London, 2001.. 179 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1902304748 B&w photographs, profiles. "Robert 'Buck' McNair came from Nova Scotia, the second of three sons born of a mix of Scottish and German parents. As a young man he became int erested in flight, and was lucky enough to be able to fly floatplanes off the Canadian lakes. When war came, he went through flight training in Canada, sailed to England, and in the summer of 1941 found himself in the newly formed 411 Squ a r d r o n R C A F. Eventually this unit began flying sweeps over Northern France and he saw his first combat actions during that autumn. An aggressive fighter pilot, he was chosen by his Canadian CO to accompany him to the besieged island of Ma lt a in t he s p ri ng o f 1942, to coincide with the arrival on that island of the first Spitfires.." McNair went on to win three DFCs and a DSO among other awards and although he was twice wounded, his score of victories reached 16, "with ot her s pro bab ly des tr oye d a nd damaged. This is a remarkable story of courage and heroism by one of the Second World War's top-scoring fighter pilots who inspired his men and fellow pilots in actions above the skies of France and Malta, and who , de sp ite bein g a lmos t b lind in one eye, continued to lead and spur his men onto greater actions." One very tiny corner bump to front board. Dust jacket has very minor edge wear/wrinkling, minor rubbing. NF/NF.‎

‎FREDETTE, RAYMOND H. INTRODUCTION BY TOM D. CROUCH. FOREWORD BY HANSON W. BALDWIN. AFTERWORD BY MARSHAL OF THE ROYAL AIR FORCE SIR JOHN SLESSOR.‎

‎The Sky on Fire: The First Battle of Britain 1917-1918 and the Birth of the Royal Air Force.‎

‎Smithsonian, Washington, D.C. 1991, reprint.. 289 pp, 9" H, soft cover. ISBN 1560980168 B&w photographs, maps, reproductions. "World War I in the air is popularly recalled as a romance of dawn patrols and chivalrous duels between Spads and Fokkers over the Western Front. All but forgotten a re the day and night raids German airmen carried out against England with large bombers during 1917-1918. Based on firsthand accounts from British and German sources, (this book) explores all aspects of the first systematic strategic air cam p a i g n i n history, including the impact it had on the strategy and conduct of World War II. The daring airmen who pioneered this new mode of warfare flew twin-engined Gotha and Giant bombers. Their raids on London spurred the British to creat e th e Ro ya l A ir Force, the world's first independent air service, and the London Air Defense Area. Except for some technological refinements, notably radar, it was essentially the same air defense system that was to serve Britain so well in Wo rl dWa r II.

‎GARDINER, JOHN EDWIN. EDITED BY DAVID E. SMITH.‎

‎Letters Home: The Wartime Correspondence and Diary of John Edwin Gardiner Rcaf (1919-1942).‎

‎University of Regina / Canadian Plains Research Center, Regina, Saskatchewan, 2004.. 197 pp, 8vo (9" H), soft cover. ISBN 088977157X B&w photographs. "John Edwin Gardiner was the eldest son of James 'Jimmy' Gardiner, the most prominent Liberal politician of his day in western Canada. Edwin was called up by the RCAF in November 1 940, received his Wings in October 1941, and travelled to England in early November 1941. On August 18, 1942, on the eve of the Dieppe Raid, Edwin wrote to his father: 'At long last we're going to take part in something big which you will r e a d a l l about in the papers long before you get this letter'. Edwin Gardiner was killed when his plane went down on the following day. James Gardiner, who had lost two brothers in the First World War, had now lost his son to war. His wife , Vi ol et , f ou nd the grief unbearable and took her own life in October 1944, yet another casualty of war. Gardiner kept all of Edwin's letters to the family. He investigated the circumstances of his son's death, visiting the graveyard at St. A ubi n L e C au f o n s eve r al occasions and writing a thorough record of his findings. To the end of his life, he maintained contact with the family of the Canadian pilot who died at the same time as Edwin and with the French family who cared for the ir g rave s. Joh n Ed win Ga rdiner's voice in 'Letters Home' is engaging, humorous, and intelligent. Like so many others of his generation, he exudes confidence and optimism despite the dangers of his situation. Perhaps most striking, a nd m ost t ouchi ng, h owe ver, is th e ge nui ne family affection that pervades these letters." Fine.‎

‎HAL ?, ROYAL NAVY‎

‎1919 Original Archive of Seven [7] Manuscript Letters Handwritten by a Royal Navy Officer of the Hms Temeraire Detailing the Ship's Role in Settling the Post World War Eastern Mediterranean‎

‎Aboard Hms Temeraire Haifa Constantinople Istanbul, 1919. 24mo - over 5" - 5¾" tall. Manuscript, On offer is a super, historically significant, modest archive of seven [7] original manuscript letters dated Haifa, Constantinople [Istanbul], January 19th 1919 through March 23rd 1919 handwritten by an officer of Royal Navy named Hal aboard the HMS Temeraire of the Eastern Mediterranean Fleet. Hal writes 32 full pages of fascinating content as the British Navy continued its new role post World War I of settling the Middle East. His narrative features an overland journey to Haifa, a description of Acre in Israel, description and commentary on the tenuous relations and allied efforts between Russians, Turks, Germans, the English and the French, in the aftermath of the Great War, together with firsthand commentary on naval involvement, movement of ships and much more. HMS Temeraire cruised the Black Sea, navigated the Bosporus Straits to the Mediterranean during this three month period. Hal twice mentions Colonel Keyes, the renowned Admiral who was involved in the Boxer Rebellion, and heavily involved in the organisation of the Dardanelles Campaign of World War I. Of particular interest are his writings of the HMS Temeraire's role ferrying the famed General Sir Edmund H.H. Allenby (who was associated with the Egyptian Expeditionary Force during the Sinai and Palestine Campaign) from Palestine to Turkey. Here are some snippets of this fascinating significant archive: "We are now on our way to Haifa in Palestine to fetch Allenby & take him to Constantinople We left Sebastopol on Wednesday, arrived at Constantinople on Thursday, left on Friday & get to Haifa tomorrow afternoon. He is going on well, but will probably take some time to get quite well. In the meantime Brookfield has put on a fourth stripe & is thoroughly enjoying himself as acting captain. He is very unfussy and quite undisturbed at any close work on the bridge which is very pleasant. Old Underbill used to get very nervous & consequently troublesome. Next day I went to a big lunch party at the local Minister for Foreign Affairs. There were six of us from the ship, about an equal number of French officers from each of the two French ships, several French soldiers & a balance of Russians. Some of the older Russ were the funniest looking old things in weird old uniforms if about Crimean War date. They (the men, not the uniforms) looked very moth-eaten & dusty, a little like wax works, as if they had stood undusted in a museum for 50 years. The host was a funny little jew - his wife was a pleasant stoutish party 45-50, possibly a lady & talked French quite passibly. The lunch itself was amusing otherwise I was bored stiff. Quite an interesting day yesterday. It started by the commander going sick, which left me practically Rear Admiral of the Black Sea. I was just getting interested in the job & had already given a destroyer her orders for a fortnight's cruise, and interviewed a bunch of Russian trade pots who are bent on opening up trade with England from here & probably still more intent on making 500 per cent on the deal, when the commander recovered & took the job over about lunch time. Last night three soldiers (officers) arrived in a destroyer from - two English & a Russian. I heard that one of them was a Col. Keyes he seems to have taken great pains to be wherever there was most fighting. He was with the Romanians in their big scrap, with Croutie at Petrograd just before he was done in: at Moscow (the only Englishman there I Believe). He was arrested several times and after escaping, generally returned with forged passports to look for more trouble. They seem to think a lot of him, both the Russians & his own lot..we left here on 4th with Allenby & his staff consisting of four generals & half a dozen other officers. I will send you some photos in due course He is a big man, about 6ft 2 I should think & only looks 45 though he is 57. His staff seems to think a lot of him & say that he did the big battle entirely on his own against the advice of all of them & of course it was the big success of the war. We arrived at Constantinople on 7th, left again (with Allenby) on 8th and got here on 11th. That night it blew a gale & made landing impossible next day - fortunately we got the General & staff landed first. We are now staying here until Monday 17th when we return to Constantinople. It is rather an attractive spot to look at. It is by Mt. Carmel, 10 miles south east of Acre, and 20 miles east of Nazareth Brookfield is still "captain" & thoroughly enjoys himself & liked having all the generals to entertain en route. He & I and the Fleet surgeon dined with the General last night. He & his staff are most pleasant & it was quite enjoyable. On Thursday evening, about 9pm our cable parted, & we shot down the Bosphorus at about four miles an hour. We got another anchor down & pulled up just short of the Sultan's harem. Only a few hundred yards more, & the old Temeraire would have found herself in the main dormitory> The skipper, in fact, had just asked me the Turkish for "Don't be alarmed, ladies, the Sultan has just appointed me Lord of the Bedchamber" - the only excuse he could think of, when the anchor held. But next day he thought it advisable to clear out, as our cables are rather old for these games. So we spent the day at Haidas Pasha, just outside the Bosphorus & camp on here yesterday. It is a nice country spot." Overall VG. Very Good.‎
