    Default Ireland's Aviation Heroes Volume 1

    Does anybody have a copy of this book? I can't find it anywhere, I've looked on ebay, amazon, abebooks etc, I've also checked libraries including the main library at Birmingham but nobody seems to have it.

    I have Volume II but need something from Vol I.

    thanks

    Isn't it this one Daz? Ireland's Aviator Heroes, not Ireland's Aviation Heroes?

    Ah, sorry. I thought as it was an earlier publication date it was Volume 1. Sorry for the confusion!

    The 2003 edition (which I take to be volume 1) in the Trinity College Dublin library. See http://stella.catalogue.tcd.ie/iii/e...g&suite=cobalt

    This book seems to be quite hard to find, I checked the library at the National Archives yesterday with no luck.

    Any sightings appreciated.

    As well as the copy in Trinity College Dublin library which I posted about above, there is also a copy in the main reading room of the National Library of Ireland in Dublin.
    See http://catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000257252
    I can check it out if you like. What is it you want to look at?

    that is very kind of you, I'm interested in the entry relating to Squadron Leader Charles Robertson Macdonald DSO DFC who was a pilot with 78 Squadron.

    Many thanks Daz
