    Default "In Enemy Hands" by Bryan Philpott, published by Patrick Stephens Ltd 1981

    Bryan Philpott had several aviation titles published from the mid-1970's to about 1989, including the above book. Is he still with us? Does anyone have contact with him? I ask as he has a few photographs in the book of interest to me.

    Please contact me by PM or off board at brewATclientsDOTch if you can assist.

    Thanks

    Hi Steve,

    Bryan Philpott is no longer with us. He passed away quite awhile ago (not sure of the exact date).

    Default In Enemy Hands

    Hi Steve,

    I have hit the same problems in research. On both occasions, contacting the publishers revealed more info, some photos and permission to use.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks Alan

    Patrick Stephens Ltd is now also defunct, and appear to have been taken over by Haynes. I have just e-mailed them, so we'll see what comes back.

    Cheers

    Hi
    I think some of the photos from 'in enemy hands' came from the ECPA archives.
    cheers

    Hello,

    The late Bryan Philpott, had this to say in, 'In Enemy Hands':

    Important. The photographs in this book are reproduced by kind permission of the Bundesarchiv, Koblenz. We have been asked to stress that copies of the pictures cannot be supplied to private collectors but will only be made available to bona fide authors and publishers. Anyone wishing to use these pictures should make a request directly to the Bundesarchiv and not to Patrick Stephens Limited.

    Col.

    Ah, now that's a key piece of information.

    Thanks very much Col. This is where my fluency in German comes in handy!

    Thank you very much
