RAF Regiment Awards
In Adversity: Exploits of Gallantry and Awards Made to the R.A.F.Regiment and Its Associated Forces, 1921-95
by Squadron Leader N.G. Tucker
Hardcover: 353 pages
Publisher: Jade Publishing Ltd (Sep 1997)
A comprehensive book on all the awards given to members of the RAF Regiment. Not all citations are given, but the book does attempt to provide details of all the "higher" awards. If citations cannot be found, as in the awards made between the wars to the Armoured Car Companies, then the author has used ORBs, diaries and other reports, to fill in the details. A lot of these also include mini-biographies of the recipients. The sections also provide historical backgrounds to events leading upto some of the awards.
An excellent book. If anyone would like a look-up, then let me know.
