Welcome to Cross & Cockade International

The spring edition of the journal (46/1) has left the printers, and will start to land on mats (in the UK at least!) by the end of this week - Friday March 6th. It's our usual wide range of fascinating articles on a wide range of WW1 aviation subjects - another one not to be missed!

If you haven't yet renewed, you won't receive this excellent journal. Don't miss out - and keep Roger happy at the same time; renew for 2015. A few folk haven't yet renewed for 2014 - could you be one? It's not too late - why not also renew for 2014 now!

A date for the diary - come to RAFM Hendon on Saturday 25th April for our AGM; and to hear Professor Jerry White (University of London) deliver this year's Leaman Lecture on "Zeppelin Nights; London in WW1". More info here.

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. 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!
