Formed in 1915, No 19 Squadron was in the thick of the action in both WWI and WWII. It was the first RAF Squadron to receive Spitfires in 1938 and was heavily involved at Dunkirk, the Battle of Britain and D-Day. Post-war the squadron flew Hornets, Meteors, Hunters, Lightnings, Phantoms and Hawks. This is a fantastic, comprehensive, almost day by day account of the squadron’s illustrious history which brings to life the spirit of the squadron.
This is a particularly pleasing copy of this excellent squadron history with a neat collection of 6 signatures of 19 Squadron Battle of Britain pilots on a card which can be removed from the book.
