SOPWITH SNIPE.  WINDSOCK DATAFILE 46., Bruce, J.M.    Foreword by R.L. Rimell.  Drawings by C.A. Owers.

Author Name    Bruce, J.M. Foreword by R.L. Rimell. Drawings by C.A. Owers.

Title   SOPWITH SNIPE. WINDSOCK DATAFILE 46.

Publisher    Albatros, Berkhamsted, 1994.

Seller ID   25236

36 pp, 11 5/8" H, soft cover (stapled in wraps). ISBN 0948414618 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, technical drawings/plans, colour profiles. "The Sopwith Snipe is firmly lodged in the minds of most WWI aeroplane enthusiasts due to the epic one-sided combat fought by Major William Barker on October 27 1918 in which he brought down four Fokker D.VIIs, an action that resulted in a well-earned Victoria Cross for the Canadian pilot. The Snipe had few other opportunities for glory; No .43 Squadron was the first unit to be equipped and made its first Snipe patrol on September 23 1918. Within five weeks nearly 100 Snipes were in France and No.208's Camels were in the process of being replaced by Snipes as the Armistice was dec l a r e d. In the immediate post-war period Snipes served with a dozen RAF Squadrons, 532 being recorded on charge by 1921, and the type soldiered on until 1928 when it was officially declared obsolete. Despite its necessarily limited role in the fi rs t ai r war the Snipe has been a popular choice for modellers and subject of at least two previous monographs and a nubmer of magazine articles. The 46th DATAFILE, however, offers the most comprehensive selection of illustrations on the type y et pub li she d in one volume and contains a great deal of information hitherto unrecorded." Interior - small soft bump at top/bottom corners of text block, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - small soft crease at c orn ers of cove rs. Very Good
