Small problem with the revised BCL bookHello, Since I aquired the new version of the BCL vol 1 the following has come to my notice. Firstly was that that on page 78. Sunday 10th September 1939 82 Sqdn Blenheim P4853 for details of crew as shown no problem except that in the original Vol 1(page 15) there are details with regard to the death and time of the pilot as well as possible detail of the death of the second crewman who died. This info is not included in the revised book. Secondly was that on page 168. Saturday 13 July 1940 82 Squadron Blenheim IV N3701 This serial number is for a Stirling. In the original Vol 1 it is correctly recorded as R3701. Thirdly was also on page 168. Re 218 Squadron Blenheim IV R3597. In the original Vol 1 (page 91) same serial number but in further vols revisions Vol 2 page 223 same serial and additional names, and Vol 3 page 316 gives revised name and serial number as R3748.( incorrectly ?). So I now accept R3597 as correct serial. The revised version is exceptional and I look forward to further revised vols. But would hope that the proof reading is more thorough and that details in earlier vols is not left out but included with explanations as to details being either correct or incorrect with references to relevant entery's in the earlier volumes.
