    I`ve got Max Hasting`s history of Bomber Command up here Ian.

    I`d happily send you it down if you want.I`m having a clear out and would welcome the chance to send it to a good home…

    Agree with Andy with regard to the photos.Their life expectancy,especially in the early days, wasn`t up to much,was it ?
