Now to this fine item:

I am currently in the process of listing several ORIGINAL ISSUE WW2 RAAF (Royal Australian Air Force) books and magazines.

Each once belonged to Mr eric Jewell, a former RAAF officer of that terrible time.

His collection covers UK, Malta and the Middle East, as well as some Australian issues.

Each, being a wartime publication, giving facts as they were presented to the public at that time. Later, more modern re-writes may or may not be more accurate, of course. But these ‘re-live’ for us now the war as it was being experienced by our parents, grandparents and their colleagues.

Each is available in a separate sale, unless already sold.

Each book is in better used condition; naturally, condition varies.

Condition of each is more specific in individual listings. [Any other variation or pertinent information is noted in that listing].

Prices vary in accordance with rarity, desirability and condition; but each is precious and, by now, scarce and desirable..

Combined postage welcome.

I am listing all titles here for your convenience, but please note that this sale is for just one of the titles; it is the book that is described in green below, is shown in the pictures and named in the title of this listing.
