    Default Anyone got the book 'Hurricane Aces 1941-45' By Andrew Thomas

    Has anyone got the book 'Hurricane Aces 1941-45' By Andrew Thomas?

    I was wondering if anyone could scan the photo on Page.31 showing pilots in the desert standing beside a Hurricane. One of them is Richard Vere Potts.

    The photo is for reference only, I will try and contact the publishers for a copy of the original for future use.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    For your reference, parts of the book, including the photo, is available via Google books:

    http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=4u-QXw2bjwUC&pg=PP1&lpg=PP1&dq=%27Hurricane+Aces+ 1941-45%27+By+Andrew+Thomas&source=bl&ots=nRfjGPF7FY&si g=chuewtDFR9xasTICC-hpnQj_YQg&hl=en&ei=BYrASuqWKtKMjAeOpKg-&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1#v=onepage& q=Potts&f=false

    click on the link that says Page 31.

    Otherwise, type in Potts in the search box on the left coloumn

    Hi Amrit,

    Thanks for the reply. I saw the relevant page on Google Books but the image is of poor quality and it is hard to make out RV Potts clearly hence the request here.

    Thanks for the suggestion though.

    And a double thanks from me Amrit. I just found one of my Malvern chaps in the book. Homer A. Armstrong, 135 Sqn. in Burma. He made it to ace in the space of a day and didn't get another claim in after that! Great story.
