    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?

    Col.

    Seems like Volume 2 can be found no where - except for the odd copy that turns up on Ebay. Volume 1 however is available for reasonable prices and in good numbers. Was the print run for Vol2 small?

    Stock alert - we now have only one copy left of Bomber Losses v2 and 5 complete sets of the DC-1,DC-2,DC-3 3 volume histories.
    Our MTQR has already sold over 75% of the print run and UKQR is over 50%.

    Default vol 2 RAF Bomber Losses Middle East & Med - reprint ??

    Please does anybody know if a reprint is planned, this 2nd volume seems to be as rare as hens teeth and currently needs a second mortgage to be able to bid for a copy.
    thanks PeteS

    Pete

    Have you contacted Air Britain to ask? There are postal addresses, email addresses and phone numbers on their website.
