304 pp, large 8vo (10" H). B&w photographs, maps, drawings. "(A) magnificent tribute to the men and machines of 112 recording their history from the First World War to the mid-Seventies when the Squadron was disbanded. Included in the book are appendices that list the squadron's 'victory' claims, its aircrew losses in the air, known serial numbers and aircraft destroyed or damaged as a result of enemy action. The book is complemented by over 150 photographs most of which were taken from private albums and will, no doubt, provide an invaluable source for researcher, historian and enthusiast alike. The Squadron was probably the most publicised RAF unit of the war not only because of its distinctive 'sharks mouth' markings but also for its remarkable combat record." Dust jacket has minor rubbing, light wrinkling at top of front flap-fold and flap.
