Welcome to Cross & Cockade International.


The winter edition of the journal (45/4) will be leaving the printers before the end of November.

This year we've had to increase our basic subscription to cover rising costs. The basic 2015 sub is £27 - up by £2 from 2014, but still superb value. This is the first time subscriptions have increased since 2006. However, the good news for overseas members is that our postage rates are coming down! Unusual these days, but our latest postal contract means that overall, even with the £2 subscription increase, the cost of the 2015 journals delivered airmail is actually REDUCED by £2! The total airmail cost is down from £40 to £38. Now there's real value for you! Keep Roger happy and renew now.

Available now! It's been twenty years since Trevor Henshaw's remarkable book, The Sky Their  Battlefield, was released. Now we have The Sky Their Battlefield II which has had all its original content thoroughly updated and expanded, revealing the stories of almost 17,000 WW1 air personnel. Every casualty from British, Commonwealth and US air services caused by enemy action is listed; with almost 6,000 new or expanded entries. Deeper analysis of German material has shown 3,250 links, including Flak and Jasta claims – over half as many again as the original edition. Also new are thousands of names in an Accidents Addendum, covering 3,270 accidents or mishaps between 1912 and 1919. There are 289 photographs (mostly new), nine new or updated appendices and well over half a million words describing the British, Commonwealth and American fighting in the air; with entire sections being re-written. Thousands of new sources have been identified and incorporated; making this book an absolute must-have for any WW1 aviation researcher.

You can find out more about the book on Trevor's site: www.theskytheirbattlefield2.com or just buy it on this site in either softback or hardback editions. Available now from Cross & Cockade International!
