5.0 out of 5 stars Tour de force, 28 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Tracing Your Air Force Ancestors (Paperback)
No question in my mind: if you have any interest in tracing men or women of the British flying services from the late Victorian period onward, this book is a must. At £9.99 it represents fantastic value.

Phil Tomaselli is a name that appears often in the genealogy press, in my experience always offering sound, practical and accurate advice on how to go about tracing ones forebears. In this specialist work he leaves no stone unturned. Phil tells us how to trace the records of an individual and how to interpret what is found. Medals, casualty records and the like are all covered in depth. He goes into squadron and other operational records and gives enough information about the development of the flying services for us to understand the context of an individual's story. The scope of the book covers the late Victorian balloon and other fledgling services, the Royal Flying Corps anbd Royal Naval Air Service of WW1, the Royal Air Force and Fleet Air Arm on the inter-war years, WW2 and Korea, Suez, Malaya and so on.

A superb work of reference.
