WHAT A DISAPPOINTING BOOK. IT IS A REPRINT 13 YEARS SINCE THE ORIGINAL HARDBACK. IT ONLY CONTAINS 144, NOT 224 PAGES. I AM NOT AWARE OF WHAT RESEARCH THE AUTHOR CONDUCTED, WHATEVER IT WAS, IT WAS NEITHER THOUROUGH OR ACCURATE. AS A REPRINT IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN UPDATED. THERE ARE NO PICTURES OF UNIFORMS,TITLE THEREFORE MISLEADING. NO INFORMATION OR PICTURES RE RAF REGIMENT SQUADRONS OR SQUADRON/FLIGHT PATCHES, FC BREVET, PRESENT DAY AIRCREW AND AS FOR THE INFORMATION ON RAFP BRASSARD/ARMBAND,A FIGMENT OF THE AUTHORS IMAGINATION..... OVERALL PROMISED MUCH BUT DELIVERED LITTLE!!!

I had high expectations with this book as I haven't been able to find a comprehensive subject covering since reading the old Blandford press books back in the seventies. Badges are reasonably covered but more modern additions such as FIghter Controller & Airborne Technician are not covered. Also missing, is the modern day back sweater crew badge and its development history. Uniforms are covered by narrative only with not many pictorial representations.

Nice little book packed with some great information and photographs. Trying to re-create the right wartime RAF look is a minefield and this book helps you along the way.

Except for oldish wartime books and small pamphlets this is the first comprehensive Badge book on the RAF.
Excellent in content and explanation-just the job!

A very clear reference work, plenty of scope for collectng more badges. Good supporting text, claer pictures, just what I needed

Not as helpful as I'd hoped from recommendations. Layout has not been configured for Kindle, so text and illustrations frequently do not match.

A little disappointed. Not what I thought it was going to be. No trade group badges
