    Clearly got the same cover design...might be the same page design... Might this mean that Ross McNeill's Coastal Losses will be published as well?

    It is currently at the printers and should be in stock shortly. This is a companion volume to the old Midland Publishing series which their successors decided not to publish. We have designed it to look pretty much identical to the earlier versions in the series.

    Malcolm,

    Thanks for your efforts with this publication. Are there plans for any more books on a similar line?

    Sorry should have made clearer that was a reply I got when I asked Malcolm of Air Britain

    From another message I got the assumption that if they had access to authored content they would consider publishing others in a similar vein but are not actively seeking it

    As a small enthusiast publisher they look at each book in isolation to see how viable it is

    Though I did here they sold a number of their very expensive DC-3 opius book back in the day to the manufacturer who used them as marketing material !

    Hello,

    Read the explanation on page 7 of Vol.1:

    With 38 Squadron, on the other hand , which converted one flight from bombing to an anti-shipping role between March and June 1942, we had a ready-made cut-off date 1st July, when the remaining bomber crews were posted to other squadrons, and 38 Squadron left 205 Group. This means of course, that a handful of 38 Squadron losses occurring on ant-shipping operations prior to that date are included, but attempting to decide whether to include on an ad hoc basis seemed too problematic. How, for instance, should a loss while mining be designated?
