    Default Clipped Wings vol 1

    Hello,

    I do not know if this has been discussed on the forum before but what was the details that were supposed to have been on page 89 ?
    Page 88 ends with details on Oxford I L4569.
    On page 89 there is the end of a sentence in regards to L4569. The rest of the page is blank.
    So is some text missing ?

    Hello,

    For the answer to your question, go to the index between pages 663-704 and match up the losses on 01/04/1940 and 02/04/1940. Doesn't seem to be any entries missing.

    01/04/1940
    Demon K8216 -Index p.670
    Harvard N7308 - Index p.673
    Wallace K6014 - Index p.703
    Oxford L4569 - Index p.687

    02/04/1940
    Hind K4654 - Index p.675
    Hind L7201 - Index p.676

    Of course, if Colin (or the printer) missed a few, they might very well not be indexed at all.

    Could it be something to do with the printers or proof editing ?
    Same thing on page 215, 259,.

    Hello,

    It's the nature of the beast! After publishing the below title, Colin found a lengthy section had been omitted. He corrected that oversight with an addendum:

    CLIPPED WINGS (Volume Three) Commonwealth Air Training Plan Pre-Operational Training Aircraft Losses 1943 - VE Day 1945 (UK, Rhodesia, India and Minor Territories).
    Cummings,Colin (Comp.,& Ed.)
    Yelvertoft:Nimbus Publishing,2018.

    ADDENDUM. Following the publication of this book, it was found that there had been a mistake in the proofing of the book's layout. This resulted in the printed index being incomplete. A total of 400 index records had been omitted and these started with Oxford aircraft and then through other types until Tiger Moths, when the correct listing was restored. The missing index records have been reconstituted and are presented as an insert.

    Happens to the best of them! If you doubt me, take a look at the following:

    Honour The Recipients Of Foreign Awards 1914-1968
    Maton,Michael.
    Honiton:Token Publishing,2013.
    (679 pp.)

    ERRATA SHEET.

    An unfortunate error has meant that the following pages (7), were omitted from "Honour the Recipients of Foreign Awards", we do apologise and hope that it will not detract from your enjoyment of this incredible new book.

    Yours,

    The Token Team.

    Col B.
