    Default 14 Sqn Books: Winged Promises or WINGED CRUSADERS

    Apparently there are two 14 Sqn Books for pre 1945


    Winged Promises: History of No.14 Squadron, RAF 1915-1945 by Vincent Orange (Hardback, 1998)


    WINGED CRUSADERS : THE EXPLOITS OF 14 SQUADRON RFC & RAF 1915-1945 By Napier, M

    I was wondering if anyone has a copy of each or both

    I had a logical look at my mystery Gordon collision with a bird - and assume it middle east from 12 Sept 1934 to Nov 26 1934 - 2 crew bailed out

    and K2621 , 14 Sqn on 12 Nov 1934 - "fits the timeline"

    I was wondering if anyone had any more info or the books mentioned cause of loss - Apparently the aircraft was wrecked on landing thanks paul

    Hi Paul,

    Napiers book does not mention event like that,

    Tables give K2621 on charge 14 San 5.7.32 and crashed Wadi Rumm in the hands of Sgt. R G Morrison, 1938 ? (his question Mark)

    best wishes Peter

    Thanks
    I think the ? is because Sgt. R G Morrison was not on sqn to 1937 so dates of something don't match!#
