Recollections of Air-to-Ground Co-operation by a WW1 Pilot

Signed by Lt. Philip Townsend

  • Price: £ 25

Signed by Lieutenant Philip Brereton Townsend

Privately published 1986.  40 pages and well illustrated with photos and documents

Very Good Condition card cover book with just a few light marks to the front cover. Inside is pristine.

Having spent 18 months on active service in France as a stretcher bearer, the author volunteered for the RFC and after training joined 12 Squadron on Artillery and Infantry Co-operation duties in RE8 aircraft.

Not much has been written about this aspect of the air war so this booklet, besides being an entertaining a memoir, contains much valuable information concerning the planning and conduct of these operations.

A nice addition to a WW1 collection.
